For office workers and those who have jobs that require extensive use of their hands, carpal tunnel syndrome is a growing problem. Symptoms can include tingling, numbness and pain in the hand and wrist. This type of repetitive stress injury occurs when the median nerve gets compressed in the carpal tunnel.
Fortunately, there are many natural ways to manage carpal tunnel syndrome without having to resort to surgery. If possible, rest the hand and wrist that are affected and consider wearing a wrist support. Apply ice to the affected area to reduce swelling.
