Carpal Tunnel Exercises
Passive Stretching During Sleep Best Exercise
Carpal tunnel syndrome sufferers often try to find Carpal Tunnel hand exercises, wrist and forearm stretching routines, and physical therapy for the upper extremities for the first step in trying to control their hand numbness and painful wrist symptoms.
Since it is usually caused by a combination of factors such a repetitive use of the hands or a metabolic condition, such as a thyroid condition; it makes no sense to perform an invasive procedure, such as surgery, because the symptoms will return within a short time even after surgery.
So, it is better to pursue a proven home exercise and stretching regimen that you can rely on to keep your hands healthy on a daily basis.
However, many sufferers find it difficult to take ten to fifteen minutes segments out of their busy lives five times a day for Carpal Tunnel stretching and exercise in the disciplined way required to prevent carpal tunnel symptoms. Stretching is actually more beneficial with CTS than hand and wrist exercises. In fact exercising injured, inflamed tissue can actually do more damage than good. Also, some people find that their syndrome has already progressed to the point where doing intensive exercises or manual stretching several times a day, can be too painful and frustrating, even though it may likely be helpful.
Carpal Solution Therapy offers CTS sufferers a better way to achieve natural stretching exercise needed without the downtime and without the pain.

It requires tremendous discipline and is often very difficult to achieve the right kind of stretching exercises, even if you can make the time. Yoga instructors, hand therapist and physical therapist work with adherents to help them learn disciplined Carpal Tunnel stretching exercises. However, most find it difficult to maintain the regimen and take the time out of a busy life to stretch sufficiently in a way that will achieve consistent gentle flexing for the time required to achieve control over their carpal tunnel condition. Stretching once a day for 15 to 20 minutes is just not enough to overcome the combined effect of repetitive stress activities and inflammation that accumulates from day to day activities to cause CTS.
Carpal Tunnel is a cyclical nerve condition where once the cycle is started, it requires a concerted, consistent and disciplined effort over Six Weeks to break the cycle and dissipate the inflammation and decompress the soft tissue compaction that results in pressure on the Median Nerve. The Six Week Protocol with the Carpal Solution provides just what is needed for the majority of people to break the cycle and return their body to it natural healing process.
Once the cycle is broken your body can keep the syndrome at bay until you over-stress your hands and wrist again and push it over the edge. Often people will go a year or two without any symptoms after completing the Six Week Carpal Solution Stretching Protocol. Sometimes it comes back quicker.
But the thing people love about the Carpal Solution is even when they have flare-ups, they are confident that they can get them under control without any downtime or complications. They can stay active and not miss a beat. The Carpal Solution is a life saver for the busy professional.
It seems that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome often flares up when you are under a combination of physical and psychological stress and can least afford the downtime for more invasive procedures like steroid injections, nerve conductivity studies, or Risky Transverse Carpal Release Surgery. Worrying about the consequences and the downtime makes the nerve condition even worse.
Carpal Tunnel Strain, if left untreated, can lead to a wide variety of chronic and potentially debilitating symptoms, including numbness and tingling in the hands, loss of grip strength, pain in the arms, neck, shoulders, and thoracic cavity, and most serious, chronic sleep loss.
If you are suffering from CTS symptoms from work related activity, it may behoove you to explore ways to alter your workstation to make it more ergonomic. For instance, if you are a computer user, typically, your keyboard should be at an easy reach, your feet should be on the floor, and your back should be straight but not rigid. Physicians counsel that CTS sufferers should avoid resting their hands on armchairs or wrist guards while they type to avoid compressing the median nerve.
Together with your physician and/or hand therapist, you can develop a powerful regimen of hand strengthening and forearm stretching exercises.
You can perform actions known as nerve glides in the midst of typing or repetitive work. Nerve glides can sooth overactive tissue and allow you to get more done. You can also do a number of wrist lifts, finger stretches, and grip strength exercises to improve muscle coordination, flexibility, and endurance.
Finally, and–at least according to thousands of CTS sufferers–most importantly, you can utilize the Carpal Solution Therapy.
