Reduce Carpal Tunnel Pain
If you spend a lot of time on a computer keyboard or doing other repetitive motions with your hands, then you're at risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome — when the nerve between your forearm and wrist gets pinched, resulting in pain, tingling, weakness, or numbness. If this sounds familiar, fight it by kneading the muscles in your wrist and arm. "Massaging the area for a few minutes several times a day can reduce symptoms," says Field. A finger or knuckle massage will do the trick, but Field also suggests pressing a tennis ball against the skin for steadier pressure.
