Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Home Remedies
a) Ice:
A lot of times, people make the mistake of wrapping their wrist in heat (like a heating pad), but this will only increase swelling. Instead, treat swollen hands and wrists to cold packs.

b) Naturopathy [3]:
Some carpel tunnel syndrome patients have gained relief by alternately dipping their hands and wrists in hot and cold water. This simple home remedy not only works wonders on increasing circulation to the wrists, but also helps to eliminate waste and lessen the pain. An effective approach involves immersing your hands and wrists in tolerable hot water for 3 minutes, followed by cold water for 30 seconds. It is recommended to repeat three to five times – once or twice per day.

c) Hand Raises:
Periodically, make it a habit to remove your hands from your keyboard and get them up into the air to release stress and tension. Raise your arm above your head and rotate, making sure to turn your wrist as well. Not only will your hands and wrists thank you, but also your shoulders, neck, and upper back.

d) Aspirin:
Reduce the pain and inflammation of carpal tunnel syndrome by taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication. Aspirin or ibuprofen is recommended. Just keep in mind that acetaminophen will reduce pain, but it will not treat the inflammation of carpal tunnel syndrome.

e) Squeeze Approach:
Rid the tingling sensation in your hands by using a ’squeeze’ motion of the fingers. Press your fingers into your palm, followed by stretching them as far back as you can. Hold the position and then repeat.

f) Sleeping Position:
When sleeping, position your arms close to your body and place your wrists straight. If your hand should drop over the side of the bed, pressure will start to build.

g) Massage:
Invest the help of a loved one who can administer a bit of deep-tissue massage that pays special attention to the arms, wrists, and hands.

h) Hand Exercises:
Exercise your hands to relieve the discomfort of carpal tunnel syndrome. Just when the tingling sensations start to emerge, consider an uncomplicated circle exercise that rotates the wrist. Start by moving your hands around in gentle circles for about two minutes. This will work all the muscles located in your wrist. Other benefits include restored circulation and help freeing your wrist from an uncomfortable bent position.
