Carpal Tunnel Exercises

Carpal tunnel syndrome is an occupational hazard that has become common as more jobs require day-long computer use. This syndrome can cause wrist pain and numbness in the fingers. Since many exercises, especially those that strengthen the arms, require strong grip strength, having carpal tunnel syndrome can deter people from exercising.  The Gravity Ball’s unique design allows the user to do weighted grip-free resistance exercise safely and effectively even if you can’t hold weight or have poor grip strength due to carpal tunnel syndrome or another health problem that impacts your grip strength.

Some of these workouts include:

Chest Flies:

The chest fly is good for focusing on triceps, the pectoral muscles, and shoulders. It can increase your body’s metabolic rate, as well as strengthen your shoulder girdle (the shoulder’s support system). Chest flies start in a neutral position with your arms raised to the side. The Gravity Ball’s adjustable straps can be used to keep your wrist straight and still lift the ball upward and in front of you without worrying about dropping the weight.

Superman Plank:

This workout can build the entire body, especially the core.

The Deadlift:

The deadlift helps to build strength in your legs, back, hips, and arms. It starts from a neutral position with arms raised to the side.

It is important not to let carpal tunnel syndrome slow down your exercise routine. The Gravity Ball is your defense against overuse injuries.
