Here are the top 10 home remedies for carpal tunnel syndrome.
1. Cold Compress
For temporary and quick relief from inflammation and numbness caused by CTS, you can use a cold compress. The cold temperature will help relieve pain by numbing the affected area. It even reduces swelling and inflammation.
Put a few ice cubes in a plastic, sealable bag.
Wrap the bag in a towel and apply it on the affected area.
Leave it in place for about 10 minutes.
Repeat every hour or so, as needed.
Note: Never apply ice directly on your skin.
2. Massage Therapy
Massaging your hands and wrists is another effective way to alleviate some symptoms of CTS. It will activate the pressure points on your hands, which in turn will increase blood supply, relax stiff muscles, improve mobility and reduce pain. red prom dress
