Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Exercises!

Champion Fitness Physical Therapists Jeff Schade and Michael Bennington explain the background of the condition and ways to deal with the problems it may cause, including exercises that anybody can do at home or work. Take some time to look at the secrets behind carpal tunnel.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disease of the hand characterized by numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness. The disease typically affects the thumb, index, and middle fingers and is often particularly troublesome at night. A major nerve, specifically the median nerve, travels down the arm and enters the hand through the carpal tunnel, which is located in the central part of the wrist. In people with carpal tunnel syndrome, pressure in the carpal tunnel is higher than in unaffected people, and median nerve irritation occurs. Thank you for visiting Medicine Men.
