This syndrome consists of a compression of the median nerve at the wrist level. If the carpal tunnel symptoms (pain and numbness) are mild, you can help with exercises. Repetitive movements help control this syndrome to relieve pain and increase your range of motion. Undoubtedly, these exercises are more effective when combined with other treatments such as wrist splints. A splint from our orthopedic line can help relieve the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome , especially at night.
Here are some tips we share to ease this pain :
- Stretch your wrists regularly.
- Separate and join the fingers to work the muscles of the hand. If possible, do this exercise with a band or loop to stretch the nerve. Repeat the movements approximately 40 times.
- Keep your arm straight, hold your fingers with the other hand. Slowly bend your fingers and hand down until you feel a stretch in the top of your hand. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times.
- Stretch before and after each physical activity. When high-impact sports are performed, we recommend the support of our Energy line to protect you during sports activity.
Kamex advises you that if the symptoms persist or worsen, it is important to consult your doctor and follow his recommendations.
