Yoga Stretches to Alleviate Carpal Tunnel Symptoms

This is going to be a simple wrist stretch, but greatly effective in  CTS. This stretch will nicely open up your wrist joint and relieve  pressure from the neural gateway. The swollen tissues around the carpal  tunnel will heal, and blood flow will increase to your fingertips.

Wall push-ups are the gentlest form of strength-building exercise for  your wrists to relieve CTS symptoms. You will need to restore the wrist  strength that you have been stripped off by CTS. But most wrist  strengthening exercises are too risky with Carpal tunnel syndrome.

The clenching fists pose will benefit the CTS symptoms at your  fingertips. This pose also involves an inward bending posture, that  particularly stretches the carpal tunnel region; reducing the internal  swelling.
