"For people using keyboards, there is usually a complex of syndromes that occurs from the neck down to the hands, any or all of which can mimic carpal tunnel syndrome." Some of these include cervical radiculopathy (where the nerves in the neck become compressed), thoracic outlet syndrome (where the muscles become tight and compress on the brachial plexus), and several nerve compression syndromes in the upper arm and forearm.

The acute stages of nerve compression are thought to be primarily vascular with damage to the blood-nerve barrier endoneurial capillaries leading to edema and increase in fluid pressure [17].
Degenerative disease of the lumbar spine is often caused by compression of neural elements, which results in radicular pain and neurogenic claudication, weakness, numbness/tingling, and pain in the lower back/buttocks.[sup][1],[2] Decompression of the spinal canal (DSC) is a common surgical procedure employed for various diseases of the lumbar spine, such as lumbar disc herniation (LDH), spinal stenosis (SS), and lumbar spondylolisthesis to alleviate intraspinal compression and subsequently relieve symptoms of nerve compression.[sup][3] However, DSC often involves the internal vertebral venous plexuses, as well as soft tissue in vertebral/paravertebral regions, and can cause massive blood loss from surgical wounds.
