Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, what is it?
It is pressure on the medial nerve, which runs the length of your arm.
The Carpal tunnel is the sheath-like opening in which the nerve fibers pass through at the wrist to enter the hand and fingers.
When you have the affliction you have swelling of this very narrow opening.
The nerves get pinched off somewhat.
Results are:pain; numbness; tingling sensation; loss of mobility and weakness of the hand and fingers!

If your wrist's are sore and painful, using a hand grip or squeezing a ball are two exercises not to do.
They tend to over work the wrist and exacerbate the already inflamed problem.
Instead take frequent breaks from the mono-activity.
Stop for a few minutes every half hour.
Perform these exercises:
1. Gently and calmly push the right palm and all fingers backwards using the left palm of your hand. Do this until you feel a slight tug in the right wrist. Then push the right hand forward for a few more seconds! Repeat with the left hand.
2. Hold your hands in front of you with palms facing outward. Now make claw movement as if you are scratching at the air. Do it for 20 to 30 seconds.
