Prevent Post-Thanksgiving Carpal Tunnel Holiday Blues

The Thanksgiving Holiday is a time when families and friends gather in the United States and Canada to enjoy delicious food and give thanks for the bounties of life.

It is the only Holiday where the main event is the food. That is also why it is a time that chefs and those who enjoy cooking and crafts work the hardest to put on the feast. We all love it.

There are few rituals as satisfying as eating a tasty feast with those you love and then collapsing into a big sofa or recliner to watch football together, talk and eventually fall into a deep post-thanksgiving dinner nap.

There are a number of things people can do proactively to avoid the suffering and the downtime at this busy time. You can enjoy the holiday season to the fullest without the pain, without dropping things and without the sleep loss commonly associated with CTS.

Here are some tips to avoid the Post-Thanksgiving Blues:

4- There are a lot of good stretching exercises on YouTube. Stick to those recommended by Medical Professionals or Yoga Experts. One caution, stay away from Yoga Poses that put a lot of weight on your hands and wrists. These are another watch out for those trying to minimize Carpal Tunnel Symptoms.

5- The best way to do it for any stretch, is to stretch gently and then hold the gentle stretch for only about 5 – 10 seconds. Then release and rest for 5 seconds and repeat the stretch for 10 – 15 repetitions. Long intense stretching can do more damage than good for injured soft tissue.

6- Have someone come with you to do the heavy lifting and save your hands and wrist for the intelligent and artistic work that you are so good at doing.

7- Order The Carpal Solution Night Time Stretching regimen that was developed by Doctors and have it on hand.
