Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a collection of signs and symptoms that are observed in, and characteristic of, compression of the median nerve in your carpal tunnel… that narrow little space between wrist and hand where 9 tendons and your median nerve enter into your hand. That’s a lot of stuff in one small spot… your nerve can be compressed because the tunnel is too small, or because the contents have gotten too large, mainly due to inflammation. Symptoms of median nerve compression are numbness, tingling, pain and loss of grip strength. It’s important to also be aware that these symptoms can be caused by compression of the nerve anywhere along its path from your neck to your hand… and tightness in the muscles of your neck is a VERY common cause that is often mistaken for issues in the carpal tunnel.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, you can try the techniques shown in this how to video… you can use them even if you just have tired hands from typing away on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome blog posts… or any kind of typing/computer use…
Regular massage and essential oil treatments can be helpful in reducing the symptoms of carpal tunnel… and be aware that these symptoms can also be caused by compression on the median nerve all along the nerve path from the neck to the hand. Massage is most beneficial when applied all along the nerve path.
I would love to help you if you are struggling with carpal tunnel symptoms.
