I use my hands a lot, as in a lot. I do manual drafting as an architect. I play the piano and the guitar. I play tennis. I do knitting and cross stitching. I cook and bake. I blog. My mom warned me to take care of my hands for at the rate I'm going, I might develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

The median nerve and several tendons run from your forearm to your hand through a small space in your wrist called the carpal tunnel. The median nerve controls movement and feeling in your thumb and first three fingers.Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when the median nerve running from the forearm to the hand becomes squished at the wrist. The pressure on the median nerve causes the the carpal tunnel syndrome. Repetitive movements - computer work, gardening, drafting - obesity, pregnancy and even smoking can cause the median nerve to swell making the carpal tunnel smaller.

I was truly alarmed for the almost every morning I do wake up with a tingling sensation in my right hand. There are oral medications available to lessen the swelling and pain in CTS. However, I saw a very acceptable option than the oral meds. IMAK offers alternative carpal tunnel relief products. It has varied orthopedic products that can provide relief from wrist pain, arthritis, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow pain at the knees, neck or back. There are products that can also relieve from migraines and sinus pain. Great! Check it out.
