Sometimes pain that presents as carpal tunnel syndrome can be coming from your elbow, shoulder, or your neck, so check with your doctor or physical therapist before assuming you have carpal tunnel syndrome and starting these exercises.
The first two stretches for carpal tunnel syndrome are more of a warm up. You will make a fist, and do wrist flexion and extension. Then you will turn your fist up with the thumb on top for radial and unlar deviation. These will start loosening up the muscles in and around the wrist.
Then you will go into full stretches for your wrist flexors and extensors. You can do them modified or the full stretch.
The next carpal tunnel stretch is a prayer stretch. This really stretches the carpal tunnel area, and you might get some numbness and tingling with it. As long as it goes away when you stop, it should be okay to do.
The last two stretches are for your pec or chest muscles and your anterior scalenes. Sometimes the pain comes from tightness in these areas at the chest and neck. So it’s important to stretch this area as well.
