Over-the-counter and prescription pain creams can be unreasonably expensive – not to mention that they often contain unnecessary chemical additives.

10. Reorganize your Desk
Those with desk jobs that spend much of the day typing are at an increased risk of carpal tunnel syndrome compared to the general population.
