Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a name given to a series of symptoms that arise from an increase in pressure on a nerve in the wrist. This increase in pressure can result from everyday activity, including excessive typing, assembly-line work, or pretty much anything where your wrists are actively engaged. The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include weakness, numbness, pain in the hands and wrists, and can eventually worsen to inability to make a fist, or tingling in your hands. These symptoms can be alleviated typically by reducing the stress on your wrist for a couple of weeks coupled with wearing a brace so that your wrist stays straight and you avoid the bending and twisting. However, if the symptoms persist for a long time, your doctor may suggest that you get surgery; however, it’s comforting to know that the surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome is quick, safe, and there are very rarely recurrences of carpal tunnel syndrome thereafter. If you actively use your wrists frequently, you can prevent your chances of getting carpal tunnel syndrome by performing stretching exercises to condition your wrists, as well as by wearing a brace to make sure that your wrist stays straight while you’re performing these active tasks with your wrists.

  1. nice review but comment about relationship to typing or “wrist overusage”
    is inaccurate and has no scientific basis. Metabolic etiologies were not
    mentioned. Good intro with nice drawings. Dr. Badia

  2. hahahaha. yeah ive been playing drums for about a year but after switching
    to french grip i noticed my thumb and wrist are getting some pain after my
    workout. i hope that’s not why

  3. crap, I think I’ve got it, I’m working really hard to get an animated
    special out for christmas and my wrist is really starting to feel it. not
    to mention the time i’m not working on it, i’m at work on the computer. my
    eyes can handle it but my wrist can’t take much more. oh well I’ll rest
    once the christmas special is fully animated.

  4. lol… so i should stop playing guitar too, pc games and uhmm my gf will do the jerkin… to lessen the syndrome…lol

  5. [..YouTube..] I used to get this because I would pick up heavy boxes all day. I just changed the way I picked up the boxes….problem solved. As for typing, I got a wrist rest….A little pad you can get to put under your wrists that really help when typing. Wrist braces do help to when you are doing something you know you cannot change the position of your wrist while doing it.
