Have you been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome? If so, your doctor may have recommended some exercises to alleviate your symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is frequently treated in sports medicine, and patients often find relief after rest and practicing specific exercises.
In this video, a sports physiotherapist demonstrates several movements that may help to reduce the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, such as tingling and numbness in the hand and fingers. To practice the median nerve gliding progression, stand arm’s length away from a wall with your hand outstretched. Gently press the palm flat against the wall. Repeat this movement 15-20 times.
