Often, this is due to stress on the hands and wrists. Adjusting your daily routine can help prevent CTS.
NYU Langone Health offers these suggestions:
- Minimize repetitive hand movements.
- Keep wrists straight.
- Alternate between activities or tasks.
- Avoid holding an object the same way for long periods.
