It is really important to make sure that you get checked by a medical professional to make sure you truly have carpal tunnel syndrome. Sometimes tightness and constriction coming from your neck that is causing pain in your wrist and tingling in your fingers. So definitely check with your medical doctor or a medical professional.
Let’s do a little stretch for your carpal tunnel that will help with carpal tunnel syndrome.
Standing up, take your arms out to the side in a soft T with your shoulders relaxed. Make a relaxed fists with your thumbs on the outside.
Flex your wrists so that you move your fists towards your body, extend your wrists so your are moving your fists away from your body. Breathe as you move.
Tuck your thumbs in, move your fists up and down towards the ceiling and the floor as your breathe.
