“They explained to me everything about my accident and what they were going to do – point by point what was going on with my body, and said they would do everything they can for me to feel back to normal.”
There are many factors that can cause carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Because of this there is no single way to prevent it. But the exercises in this handout can help you protect your wrists.

What else can you do?
Studies have shown yoga can be helpful for people with carpal tunnel syndrome. Make sure to talk about your interest in yoga with your health care practitioner. He or she can let you know if there are certain postures you should avoid. And talk with the yoga instructors before class. Let them know about your CTS and any other health conditions you may have. They will be able to modify postures to be safe for you.
Correct posture and rest breaks can help lessen the negative effects of CTS. Take breaks during work and while doing hobbies or chores at home. And learn proper posture for all the activities you do. If your company offers it, ask for an ergonomic evaluation of your work area. Then follow the recommendations both at work and at home.
Ask your health care practitioner if there are any tests, referrals, or treatments that might be helpful to use along with your current treatment plan. Other treatment options may include the following: chiropractic services, physical therapy, medicines, and other services (such as occupational therapy).
