5 Tips to Reduce Pain from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City, California is ready to help you relieve your pain due to carpal tunnel syndrome. When the median nerve, the central never in the wrist, is under pressure, it causes carpal tunnel syndrome to occur.

These are common symptoms to indicate that you have carpal tunnel syndrome:

  • Dropping things because your hand muscles are weak
  • Continuous pain in the wrist or hand
  • Numbness and tingling in your hand or fingers (excluding the smallest finger) can be felt from the wrist and through the whole arm.

Dr. Pete Tsiglieris, our NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City, recommends these tips to prevent complications from carpal tunnel syndrome:

  1. Use Better Tools For Work

Proper tools make every job more accessible and more comfortable. An ergonomic keyboard and a vertical mouse may be more expensive and intimidating at first, but after getting used to them, they will undoubtedly prove to be helpful. Over time, using these ergonomically designed tools will pay for themselves in price, value, and comfort. 

  1. Brace It

Using a wrist brace prevents you from overusing the muscles of the wrist unnecessarily. Keeping your wrist at a straight and relaxed position allows you to work more efficiently. Thus, you are preventing your wrist muscles from getting stressed at awkward angles. 

  1. Keep Proper Posture 

Your hands should never be lower than your wrists when you are typing. It helps keep the wrists remain at the proper angle. It can also help prevent nerve pain. 

  1. Rest Your Wrist

Working for prolonged periods will undoubtedly tire your wrists. If your wrist begins to feel sore or strained, take a break. Pause for a moment and take the time to stretch your hand muscles slowly. If you rest sooner rather than later, then you are allowing yourself to avoid days or even weeks of needed rest to recover from an avoidable injury.
