CTS and RSI cure

Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress type injuries are the result of muscles being worked in a limited range of motion for extended periods of time restricting blood flow to critical joints and nerves. With this knowledge at hand (pun intended) it is easy to create some exercises that can repair the damage associated with these injuries. Exercises that move a joint through its full range of motion wiith a little resistance can stimulate blood flow to joints and nerves and help relieve symptoms. One of my favorites is simply stretching a rubber band in an outward direction with the tips of your fingers and thumb. Not only does this stimulate blood flow but strengthens the tendons on the back of your hand that normally don't get worked much. For clenching type exercises I prefer the hand exercisers that look like big mouse trap springs. These work well but care must be taken not to over do it at first as it will take a while to build up the cartilage that protects the joints.

Positive results can usually be seen in 4-6 weeks.

Good luck!
