Topic: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome & Its Prevention
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when your median nerve becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist, running from the forearm into the hand.
This nerve controls the sensation to the palm side of the thumb and fingers.
If you felt a tingling or numbness sensation in your hand and wrist for months, please consult a doctor to check it.
At the workplace or even for home based mommies, you can prevent this by:
doing stretching exercises
taking frequent rest breaks
wear splints to keep wrist straight
use corrective posture and wrist position
