carpal-tunnel-decompression-exercises When you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, the cramping and pain is sometimes enough to bring tears to your eyes.  There are no lengths that you won’t go or try to get relief.

There are specific movements and exercises that you can do each day that can provide temporary hand and wrist pain relief.  They are referred to as carpal tunnel decompression exercises and movements.

The reason why they are called decompression exercises is because they are meant to stretch the carpal tunnel so that the nerves(the main one being your median nerve) will have plenty of room to glide and function normally which relieves the pinching, compressing feeling you experience in your wrist.

In order to get any sort of relief from your carpal tunnel symptoms, you should implement these movements 3 times a day.  They are simple enough that you can do them at home or in your workplace.

Here’s how to perform Decompression Movements to Relieve Carpal Tunnel:

  1. Starting position is with your arms out straight in front of you, wrists straight, palms down.  Slowly squeeze your hands and make a fist.  Continue to make a fist for about 5 seconds.
  2. Next, slowly start to extend and bend your wrists upwards towards the ceiling.  Extend and bend your wrist as far back as you can.  Again hold this position 5 seconds.
  3. After 5 seconds, slowly release your fist and drop/flex your wrists so that they straighten out.  Again wait in this position for 5 seconds.
  4. Bring both arms down to your side and shake your hands out.
  5. You should perform 3 sets of 10 -12 repetitions throughout the day.
