In this age of technology there are so many devices that we use on a daily basis that strain our wrists and hands. Not just typing, but even just the repetitive thumb swiping of browsing can add micro strain to the delicate and complex joint of the wrist and hand causing and aggravating the common condition of carpal tunnel. For athletic types there is also the added complication of wrist strain from weight training, boxing, push ups, and numerous other exercises that involve articulation of the wrist.
Carpal tunnel is caused by repeated compression of the main nerve that runs through the wrist into the hand. Repetitive activities over time cause damage to this nerve that can lead to tingling, pain, and numbness in the hand. This nerve damage can hamper daily activities small actions like typing to larger physical efforts such as working out.
