Top 3 Carpal Tunnel Exercises that Physical Therapists Don’t Want You to Know

By September 1, 2018 No Comments

You’re probably reading this article to A) figure out if carpal tunnel exercise can truly help, or B) to see how involved these pain solutions are, or C) you’re super bored. I’m not sure we can match the entertainment value of Lord of the Rings with this blog post, but I can make sure you get some relief.

At WristAlert, we are making Physical therapy accessible and convenient for everyone. There is no reason why physical therapy should cost thousands of dollars (even with deductibles!) and force you to take time off work. Physical therapists keep making money off of you if you stay injured. The incentives are not aligned between injured people and the physical therapy industry. WristAlert can be accessed anywhere and anytime at a fraction of the cost, yet be as effective. There is a specific formula that physical therapists will give you, but they won’t release it. That is why we created the WristAlert app.

Here are 3 effective carpal tunnel exercises for solving your finger, hand, or wrist pain that you can do on your own. These exercises are one out of hundreds of different type of exercise techniques that are available in our WristAlert program.

Tendon Glide

The above finger positions will help to work the finger flexors and extensors. This is important because you feel pain due to inflammation or irritation of the tendons. Training your tendons to glide better relative to each tendon can reduce inflammation or irritation and as a result, your pain. Practice these motions in sequential pattern, holding for 3 seconds in each position. Repeat 3x, performing the exercises 3 times a day. Perform pain and strain free.


Grab a squeeze ball.

Take a soft ball and hold it in your palm, squeezing it as hard as you can without causing your hands pain. Hold this position for three to five seconds, and then release. Work up to repeating this exercise 10 to 12 times for each of your hands. Continue this exercise two to three times weekly, but rest approximately two days before your next session. This exercise will help treat pain and provide the ability to hold things without dropping them, as well as help you open door knobs throughout your day.

Wrist Flexion and Extension

Stretching wrist flexors and extensors helps to loosen up the tendons and relieve pressure through the wrist. For flexion stretch, pull your palm up as in the first picture. Hold a moderate, not painful, stretch for 30 seconds to 1 minute. For an extension stretch, pull your palm down as in the second picture. Hold a moderate, not painful, stretch for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Repeat 3x a day. Perform pain and strain free.
