Strengthening exercises increase muscle tone, which is important for the overall health of your carpal tunnel region. The best ways to strengthen your hands, wrists, and forearms is to counter balance the motions you do the most. If you are constantly gripping tools, think about how can you introduce a new movement to create more balance over time.
Therapy putty is great for this type of action. It helps to restore biomechanical balance to your hands, wrists, and forearms. Using therapy putty regularly will strengthen the muscles of your hands and arms in a different way. This can help to relieve the strains that develop from overworking these muscles with repetitive motions.
