Use Arnica

Use Arnica to ease carpal tunnel painArnica, also known as Leopard’s Bane, is a special herb used as early as the 1500s to treat inflammation and injuries. Extracts of Arnica contain 1, 5-trans-guaianolide, a specific chemical that attacks the enzymes of inflammation. Other inflammatory processes that contribute to pain are also stopped by several vasoactive substances. It is widely used in Europe and Asia for carpal tunnel syndrome and other inflammatory disorders.

Use Aloe Vera

Use Aloe Vera to ease carpal tunnel painAloe Vera is a gift of nature. Its role in skin treatment is well known. This plant is also good at fighting inflammation and rheumatic pain. Aloe Vera contains substances such as Glycoproteins, Polysaccharides, Campesterol, and Bradykinin. Glycoproteins speed up the healing process and inhibit the actions of a particular enzyme responsible for generating pain and inflammation.

Wear a Splint

Wearing a splint can ease pain from carpal tunnelUsing a splint or brace can accelerate the healing process. If your work or daily routine does not allow you to wear a splint all day, even just wearing it at night has proved to be beneficial for many CTS patients. Some people might find it difficult to wear, because it prevents the hand from bending or being held at angles that are hard on CTS.

You Hand Deserves a Break

Give your hands some rest to get relief from carpal tunnelGiving your hand a rest is very important. Rest improves blood circulation and relaxes tension in the muscles and tendons. Even just giving yourself a five minute break to relax your hand every now and then could make a big difference. Place your arm, from fingertips to the elbow, on a flat surface and simply let it be at ease. Maybe even massage it a bit.

Add Vitamin B6 to Daily Regimen

Use B6 to ease carpal tunnel painMany physicians recommend taking Vitamin B6 because it is very beneficial for nerve compression injuries and has the ability to postpone hand surgery for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) patients.

The Enigma of Heat and Cold

Heat and Cold can ease pain from carpal tunnelWhen you see a little swelling, it is a very common misconception that you should apply heat. The swelling shows the onset of your pain and inflammation. If you apply heat, it will dilate the vessels. Through these vessels, more causative agents, which cause inflammation and pain, will rush to your place of injury. That is why heat is not recommended for this stage. When you see some swelling, you should apply ice.

Gripping Firmly? You are Doing it Wrong

Gripping firmly can lessen pain from Carpal Tunnel Your grip is the force that you put on something. There are many tools we grip firmly. An example of this is your car steering wheel. Why do people grip it so firmly? Why do we put so much stress on the shaft of a pencil? What about our utensils while we eat? It might be a habit. Pay attention to how you grip everything, you may notice that you grip tightly when there is no need.

Invest in Ergonomic Devices

An estimate suggests that an average American spends a continuous 3.3 hours on texting and social media per day. Modern technology has brought so much comfort into our lives in one sense, but many are unaware of the stress that has been added to our hands, fingers, and wrists.
