Hi I’m Angela on behalf of Expert Village and right now I am going to teach you some things on home remedies for carpal tunnelsyndrome. You also want to see you physical before you start treating this at home becauseit could possibly be arthritis. One of the things that you can do and make this routinejust like eating is rotating the wrists for 2 minutes, 3 times a day and this exercisesthe muscle and strengthens them and reduces the risk of it getting even worse. Anotherthing you can do is take aspirin because not only does it relieve the pain during thisoccurrence it also decreases the inflammation which is very important. Another thing isthat if you do have carpal tunnel syndrome
one of the things that you might be deficienton is the Vitamin B6 so I recommend that you buy that vitamin and take it regularly. Peoplethat have stopped taking it had reoccurring carpal tunnel afterward. Another thing youcan do is put ice on a paper towel and put it on the spots. It decreases the inflammationas well as the pain. Another thing you can do is just stop what you are doing that ordinarilycauses you the pain. If you follow all these steps, it will decrease the pain and inflammationfor your carpal tunnel syndrome. Remember to see a physician first to determine whetheror not it is arthritis or carpal tunnel..
Top 3 Exercises for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This is the Top 3 Exercises for Carpal TunnelSyndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome involves a nerve called the median nerve.The median nerve starts at C5 to T1 which is right here. So about the middle lower partof your neck. The nerve travels down your arm, down the front of your arm, in frontyour elbow and into the hand. It innervates or gives sensation to the thumb, index finger,middle finger and half of the ring finger. So that is your median nerve. That is the nervethat is problematic in carpal tunnel syndrome. The carpal tunnel is right here.So carpal means wrist bones. There is actually a little tunnel formed with a littlesheath over top where that median nerve goes
