@aussielouie/Emilio J. Puentedura posted this link to an article he wrote for Discovery Medicine on New Advances in the Mechanisms and Etiology of CTS. It reviews how and why CTS is due to central sensitization and it's similarities to other conditions like tension HA and LBP. Most importantly, he does not discount peripheral input and dysfunction as contributors to the CNS sensitization process. Treatment should include both peripheral and mechanism based therapies, plus education and graded movement to address potential sensitization issues.
