Carpal Tunnel is a common workplace or overuse injury. It results from compression of the median nerve in the the wrist near the palm of the hand. It can lead to wrist pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the wrist and hand, and difficulty with fine motor control including tying or mousing. This program will educate you to have better posture, strengthen the postural muscles, and stretch out the nerve that is being compressed to alleviate wrist, hand, and finger pains.
Disclosure: These programs are not meant to be a diagnostic or treatment as each person and each injury is different. This plan is best used as an educational guide on typical exercises that can help a variety of conditions. Not all of these exercises are necessary for each injury, and some may actually be harmful. You should always consult your healthcare provider or physical therapist to ensure that you have the best program for you. Please do not continue these exercises if symptoms worsen, and each exercise should be moderately challenging and never unsafe or painful.
