Dr. Amanda shows us an exercise that people can practice in order to lower the risk of getting carpel tunnel. Many people spend nearly eight hours a day at work with their hands partially flexed, which can result in many of the symptoms of carpel tunnel. These symptoms commonly start with damaged nerves. So, in order to lessen the risk of damaging these nerves, Dr. Amanda suggests people do the “Soup Can” exercise. The exercise is very easy to do, and all you need is a flat surface as long as your forearm and a light item the size of a soup can. Doing this exercise will strengthen the muscles around the at-risk nerves in your wrists and hands.
