Relief for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome Is At Hand

Our bodies are so intricately designed, and often we take for granted the motion of our fingers, and the impact that repeated use can have on the hand. One of the negative results can be a condition called Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).

CTS is a very painful condition that builds over time with regular use of certain tendons and muscles in the fingers. When the condition is at it's worst, there is sometimes unbearable pain in the thumb, index and middle finger. Sometimes you can even feel this pain on the inside of the ring finger as well. 


One very common use that can cause problems is the repetitious motion of using the mouse with your computer, or typing, or any other thing that requires repeated motion affecting the tendons associated with the movement of your fingers. This is why it is important to know the various things that can cause CTS, and know there are numerous helps and ergonomic supports that you can use to find Carpal Tunnel relief. If you feel symptoms that indicate you are developing this condition, you may be able to stop it before it progresses.

  1. My friend is just right now getting ready for surgery on both her hands for CTS. They're going to do one hand at a time so she can still do some work.
    For some reason, though I'm an artist and have used my hands all my life I don't have any problems with this issue - but I have joint pain in my hips and knees that gets so bad I can hardly get out of a chair(especially during this humid monsoon weather).

  2. I wonder how much impact the typing has on our hands as it related to CTS.
