7. Elevate Your Hands
Fluid retention can cause carpal tunnel syndrome, especially when brought on by pregnancy or another medical condition.
Elevating your hands above your heart will help reduce swelling and the subsequent pressure on the medial nerve. Do this several times a day or whenever you notice swelling.
8. Eat Anti-Inflammatory Foods
Over-the-counter and prescription anti-inflammatories come with their own list of side effects – many of which can be worse than the conditions they’re designed to treat.
Eating a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods is one of the most effective home remedies for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Foods and spices like garlic, cherries, turmeric, and ginger will provide just as much relief without the side effects.
