WARNING!

Beware of Carpal Tunnel

What is Carpal Tunnel?

Carpal Tunnel is a painful injury you get in the wrists and fingers. This is caused by the compression of your major nerves when it passes over the carpal bones in your arm or wrist. Just in case you don't know, it hurts so very bad. Now that I think about it, I think that's how they got the name Carpal tunnel.


How is it caused?

Carpal tunnel is developed by using the wrong positioning of the wrists and fingers when keyboarding, playing piano, and more things that have to do...you know...with your wrists and fingers. When you take a computer course, you'll learn about posture and techniques. Trust me, it's very important!


How to prevent it...

You can prevent Carpal Tunnel by using the right posture. Make sure your wrists are low, and your fingers are curved. Also, make sure you don't keep your wrist on the table. Use a wrist rest if you have one! There's so much more ways to prevent Carpal tunnel, but so little time. Check it out for yourself and you'll be surprised!
