Carpal Tunnel Relief for Daily Life

>> Saturday, July 26, 2008

I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my right wrist lately. My hand will go numb when I sleep (and the pain of it will wake me!) or if I am doing something during the day and move it wrong a shooting pain runs through my arm.

Almost 15 years ago, when I was a hairstylist, I had a really bad problem with tendonitis in that wrist. It got so bad that I had to quit doing hair. That was the beginning, I believe, of what is now progressing into a carpal tunnel problem that has been fueled by caring for children and lots of typing at the computer.

My chiropractor gave me a brace to wear to bed, which helps a bit, but is almost impossible to wear during the day. It has a metal support in the base so any type of wrist movement is physically impossible.

Recently I became aware of the IMAK Smart Glove. It’s a strong cotton Lycra® (so it can be washed) that holds the wrist in place but still allows flexibility and movement. There is also a massaging ergoBeads™ pad under the wrist to cushion it when I am typing.

Finally- carpal tunnel relief that I can live with! And I can pay for it with my HSA money. I’ll be getting one of these today! Before I start cleaning the garage!
