This video features a yoga instructor explaining one stretch to relieve wrist tension and help avoid carpal tunnel. If you have spent all day typing, this exercise can alleviate stress by elongating the tendons in your wrists.
The first step is to sit up straight and roll your shoulders back. Then lift your arms out straight, with the palms up. Next, use your right hand to press the fingers of the left hand until they are almost perpendicular to the floor. Take deep breaths and hold this stretch for 10-15 seconds. Then switch sides.
If you are suffering from wrist pain and are worried about carpal tunnel, seek medical help immediately. Then contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to evaluate your claim and help you file for benefits.
