In brief: Carpal Tunnel

There is a genetic component that is what it is.
Beyond that, take car of your hand. Make a paradigm shift: think about yourself like an athlete. No matter what the sport, even highly trained athletes don't just get to the ball park and start to play. They warm up, they stretch, they take breaks as needed. And none are playing for as long as a typical worker works each day i.E 8 hrs or more.

In brief: Brace, NSAIds

Many patients with carpal tunnel find relief from wearing a brace that helps immobilize the wrist.
Nsaids can also lessen the inflammation and pain. Furthermore, cortisone injections can help the symptoms. Sometimes medicines like Neurontin and Lyrica (pregabalin) can be used. Finally, surgery is always a possibity if conservative measures fail. www.oano.com.
