I recently came across a great video series for treating carpal tunnel syndrome I wanted to share with you. These free online videos show some great exercises for easing the discomfort of carpal tunnel syndrome.
There are 15 videos in the series that show how to understand carpal tunnel syndrome, the symptoms, and most importantly how to relieve the pain caused by it with exercises and stretches. This is a great free physical therapy video series available to anyone.
Some of the topics covered are as follows:
- Learn how to position your wrist to relieve symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome
- What activities and hand and wrist positions to avoid if you have carpal tunnel syndrome
- Demonstrations of hand, forearm and scapular stretches to relieve symptoms
The carpal tunnel is a passage in the wrist. Through this tunnel pass the median nerve and flexor tendons to the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome, is a painful, numbing, and or weakening condition of the hand and wrist that occurs when the median nerve is compacted. In addition to the exercises and suggestions outlined in the video series, those suffering from this condition would greatly benefit from the use of an ergonomic pen. And the best pen I can recommend is my physician designed UGLee Pen which relieves any pressure to the nerves and tendons you may encounter while writing.
