T4 syndrome deals with upper thoracic vertebrae IV and it is a posture syndrome. The syndrome has symptoms including sleepy/tingling hands, neck pain, and back pain. Treatments for the syndrome vary from receiving adjustments from a chiropractor to taking pain medications. Surprisingly, massage will not help with the symptoms caused by this syndrome. This syndrome can be prevented. One strategy for prevention is to take a small break from computer work every thirty minutes and do stretch exercises.
- Having neck and shoulder pain, as well as having your hand go numb are all symptoms and signs of having T4 Syndrome.
- People who use computers for long periods of time or who pick up heavy objects excessively are more likely to get T4 Syndrome.
- Some women, physically weak people, and people with hunchbacks are more likely to get T4 Syndrome.
“It is recommended that after using a computer for every 30 minutes or an hour, people should do stretching exercises to relax their joints and tense muscles.”
