Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking AloDokte
Nerve pinch in the palm of the hand (carpal tunnel syndrome) is the squeezing or squeezing of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel, which is a narrow passage in the wrist formed by the wrist bone (carpal bone) and connective tissue between bones (ligaments), the pressure is caused by canals become narrow due to the surrounding tissue to swell.
Risk factors are usually daily activities that rely too often on the wrist such as typing, motorbikes for long distances, writing on the wrist. Symptoms of tingling, pain, such as burning, or death in the fingers and hands in some conditions can occur muscle weakness.
Some things you can do to reduce compression on nerves are:
Improves posture when working with a laptop and mouse by ensuring the condition of the wrist is not bent (can set the laptop as high or slightly lower than the elbow).
Take regular short breaks after working for 1 hour.
Reducing the use of electronic gadgets such as cellphones, tabs.
Doing stretches regularly on the hand area.
Using a hand brace is called a wrist splint especially during sleep so that it can support the hand and reduce pinching.
If the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome have been felt and are very disruptive to the activity, it is advisable to consult a doctor or physician after a further examination and management.
That's the thing we can say. Thank you
