Use both hands to make fists, hold them tightly for about ten seconds. After doing so open your palms quickly and spread apart your fingers. Do this ten times in a row.
Turn your wrists in a clockwise motion, so this about ten times with both wrists.
Make clockwise motions with your thumbs next, ten times as before.
Place your hands together and press them tightly against each other. Be sure to keep your elbows shoulder height, as if doing a meditation pose. Clench your fingers and separate the palms.
In doing so, gradually increase the distance between the joints in your fingers. Be sure to leave them clenched throughout the whole process though. Once finished return your palms to their original position and repeat this process at least ten times as well.
This simple workout will have your circulation improved dramatically and will even reduce swelling. This should be done quite a few times a day after hard labor or while sitting in front of your computer. Continually using your hands can wear them out it is best to make sure they stay strong as well as the rest of your body.
I personally have not been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome but I did brake my left wrist a few years back and I find these 4 step exercises helpful whenever my wrist gives me discomfort or a little unwanted pain. Keep your hands mobility going.
I welcome any questions, sharing or comments you may have.
