Follow these tips to alleviate carpal tunnel syndrome pain

When there is an aching and throbbing in your body, most of us go to our usual solution to the problem: by taking ibuprofen or cooling the injury. When it comes to carpal tunnel syndrome, it can become a struggle when the remedy does not work and the pain returns.

Carpal tunnel syndrome may occur over a period of time through repetitive and flexing tasks at work. The Carpal tunnel is a set passageway of muscles and bones on the palm side of your wrist. It protects the muscles that bend your fingers and the median nerve, which passes from your forearm to your hand. The median nerve provides signals for the muscles to move. Pressure on the median nerves may cause inflammation of the tissue, tingling, and numbness that circulates up the arm.

A person may feel symptoms when there is a weakening of their wrists while holding and grasping heavy or light objects. If symptoms worsen, there may be muscle fatigue. You may have difficulty completing daily tasks such as tying a tie or unbuttoning your shirt.

Try these exercises to lessen carpal tunnel syndrome pain.

  • You may consider having surgery.
  • It is great to stay active and complete stretching exercises by bending your wrist and pushing your palm up towards the ceiling and down facing the floor till you feel a stretch.
  • You may want to consider buying work gloves.

In Pennsylvania, carpal tunnel syndrome is a recognized medical condition. For this reason, you may want to consider applying for social security disability income (SSDI). You may want to contact an experienced workplace attorney, who can guide you to get the justice you deserve.
