I lifted something really heavy yesterday, had pins and needles in my wrist today. Bought a wrist brace for carpel tunnel. Am I responding correctly?
I have mild carpal tunnel. Doctor says I need a wrist brace. I have tremors in my pinkies. What type and/ or brand of wrist brace do you recommend?
See below. The proper splint for carpal tunnel syndrome is called a neutral wrist splint. This keeps the wrist in a so called neutral position, no flexed or extended. The splint should be worn at night all night. If the symptoms do not improve after 6 weeks, daytime wear as well can be tried. If no improvement, other approaches in include cortisone injections and surgery if it worsens. Weight loss also helps. Read more...
