Wrist Arm Motion


Occasionally, your wrists and arms feel numb; a tingling sensation begins in your fingers then persistent pain shoots from the tip of your fingers to the top of your shoulders. Sound familiar? It's possible you have the beginning stages of a condition called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, one of the most common and often disabling injuries experienced in today's computer-intensive workplace. Several factors put you at risk, including poor posture, lack of frequent, regular breaks, and an improperly set-up workstation (i.e., Is your keyboard too high, too low or excessively tilted? Do you reach for your mouse or grip it too tightly and continually reach for heavy items across your desk?)


While you may need medical attention or advice regarding your symptoms, there are steps you can take to improve the way you carry out repetitive activities. Think about the day-to-day motions you perform and evaluate if there is a safer method you should follow. Spend a few moments to make key adjustments to your workstation or consider the way you're holding or using a tool, cooking utensil, etc. Most importantly, if you currently feel any physical warning signs of pain in your hands, wrists or arms, please don't ignore them

  Braces For Wrist, Forearm, Hand

One way to alleviate the "pins and needles" sensation, along with the weakness and a limited range of motion you may be experiencing from performing repetitive motions is to wear a brace. Hand, wrist and forearm braces provide relief by stabilizing your movements and keeping the muscles in a neutral position. Night use is helpful because we are often unaware that we are sleeping with our wrist in an awkward position. By using a brace while sleeping, the neutral positioning encourages good circulation and provides a much needed break for the wrist muscles

  Carpal Tunnel

Inside the wrist is a small channel known as the Carpal Tunnel formed by bones, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels and a major nerve, which supplies sensation to parts of the thumb and fingers and supplies physical movement to part of the hand. Repetitive motions can cause pressure, swelling and constrict this channel causing painful tingling and numbing sensations throughout your hands, wrists, elbows and arms.


Some conditions associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include pregnancy, renal failure and high blood pressure. Most common injury or trauma to the wrists, including repetitive movement caused by typing, gardening, painting, writing or using hand tools, can cause swelling of the tissues and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
