Acupressure For Wrist Treatment

| September 2, 2011 | 0 Comments | 749 views

Wrist pain is often due to repetitive stress imposed on the wrist by computer related activity such as typing. Sometimes wrist pain is due to carpal tunnel syndrome. In this condition the inflamed tissue compresses the nerve inside the wrist (medial nerve). The nerve, in turn, releases chemical substances that inflame the tissue further. When treating this condition your goal is to stop the inflammation/compression cycle. Active points massage is an effective way to treat wrist pain. Often single 30 minutes treatment is sufficient to eliminate the pain for good. Treat active points for as long as you can or until numbing feeling is produced, as often as you can during the day.

Straitening the wrist at night facilitates healing by reducing pressure on the nerve. Some patients find it helpful to stabilize the wrist in straitened position by wearing the wrist splint.

Sit comfortably or lie down, close your eyes and breath deeply when massaging the active points.
