How to get rid of wrist pain?
Hello, I am research scholar. I am in the final year of my PhD and writing my thesis. I spend a good amount time, approximately 8-10 hours in typing my thesis. Recently I am getting wrist pain. It is becoming unbearable and doctor has suggested that I have carpal tunnel syndrome. The pain is due to excess pressure in my wrist and on the median nerve. Is there any way to get rid of this pain?
@snita The median nerve is one of the three major nerves in the forearm. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed, or pinched. It is located on the palm side of your hand, providing sensation to the following parts of the hand: thumb, index finger, middle finger and part of the ring finger. You can help prevent wrist pain due to carpal tunnel syndrome by practicing some of the following strategies: using an ergonomic keyboard to keep your wrists from bending upward, resting your hands often while typing or doing similar activities, working with an occupational therapist to stretch and strengthen your wrists.
