Carpal Tunnel

I suspect I might have carpal tunnel syndrome, but it’s odd because I have way more elbow pain than I do pain in my wrist or hand. I’ll probably be seeing an orthopedist soon.

I have found some stretches that work really well for carpal tunnel (and they are good stretches for anyone to do syndrome or not).

  1. Spider Push-ups
  2. The Shake
  3. The CTS stretch

This is a great article with animated images showing each stretch. I’ve also read about ulnar nerve entrapment. There’s some at-home¬†ways to go about feeling better there too.

  1. Keep arm straight while sleeping (with towel or backwards elbow brace).
  2. Nerve gliding exercises.

Here’s to at-home physical therapy!
