10 Exercises for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the wrists and hands. The condition is caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrists. Specific exercises may help relieve mild to moderate cases of carpal tunnel syndrome.

“It is important when experiencing nerve irritation, tingling, or numbness to avoid pushing through exercises. Nerves can be quite sensitive and often can worsen if challenged too intensely,” says Meghan Curle, registered physiotherapist at Evolve Physiotherapy and Collaborative Care in Whistler, BC. “With the [following] exercises it is recommended to try only a couple at a time and monitor if your symptoms ease. If they do, great! If they worsen, try a different exercise once the symptoms settle, or perform with less intensity.”

1. Gentle shake

Shaking your hands gently back and forth can provide some relief from the symptoms of carpal tunnel. You may find this particularly useful at night when symptoms may be at their worst.
