And work closely with GP's, Radiologists and Occupational Physicians to get a complete picture of what is going on inside.do-i-have-carpal-tunnel-syndrome.html And conditions where the nerve function deteriorates over time due to peripheral neuropathy; Diabetes, Motor Neurone Disease, Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
