Benjamin's Personal Blog: Dealing with Carpal Tunnel*

Benjamin's Personal Blog: Dealing with Carpal Tunnel: "Monday, November 25, 2002 Dealing with Carpal Tunnel. In late 1997 when I was working with hand tools or typing for extended periods of time, my wrists would occasionally start to tingle.

Like many people I didn't think twice about it and simple assumed it would go away. However as time went by the tingling turned into pain and then I took notice. I went and saw a doctor about the situation. He gave me an arm brace and I was told to return in a month. The arm brace did help and the pain disappeared after a week.

Over the next year whenever the pain would return in one of my wrists I would simply wear the braces until the pain went away. The braces were healing my wrists, but I knew that if I kept up the cycle my wrists would eventually not be able to heal. I began to explore different steps that could be taken to prevent injuring my wrists again.

Over the years I have tried many different things and spoke to many people about what they have done. The following is a list of the best actions I have taken to prevent further injury to my wrists." Writes Benjamin Meyer.

"I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife Jen, collecting Transformers and learning more about programming." Benjamin writes.
