Do you have carpal tunnel syndrome? Here are 3 ways to fix your carpal tunnel syndrome.
1. Check your desk space for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome culprits
If you work at a desk all day, this is most likely the very cause of your carpal tunnel syndrome. First and foremost, align your computer monitor so that it is at eye level.
This naturally places you in a better posture, which is better for your neck, shoulder, elbow, and wrist.
It will help reduce the pain in your hand because blood flow and nerve impulses will have less impedance going into your hand.
Next, make sure your mouse is the proper one for you. There are many different kinds that place your hand and wrist at better angles as to not irritate the carpal tunnel.
2. Do some light exercises throughout the day
Our bodies were meant to move, not sit! Unfortunately we may not have the option to run around all day. Many of us sit for hours at a desk at work.
Set a timer on your phone or watch for every 50 minutes.
When it goes off stand up and move around for a few minutes. I like to pull my head back and look up at the ceiling. It’s difficult at first, but it helps relieve pain in the neck and it helps give some space to the nerves that go down the arm and into the hand.
Another one is to do some wrist stretches. You can go up, down, in, out, but I usually make circles with my wrists. It helps stimulate the nerve receptors in the wrist and can naturally make them feel better.
3. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome fast relief: Get your wrists adjusted
If you didn’t know you could get your wrists and hands adjusted, now you do! Adjusting the hand can move the bone off of the nerve that’s causing the pain in the carpal tunnel!
This can create immediate relief. Let me know if you’re interesting in learning more about wrist adjustment.
Some patients use wrist braces while they sleep.
Sometimes these help, but sometimes these make things worse.
If you use your hands all day and then place them in a limited position with a brace, they may not be able to naturally remove the inflammation that’s causing the pain.
Check with your doctor, chiropractor, or physical therapist before treating your symptoms.
