Carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome | Prevention

Some little tricks can help reducing the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome, especially if daily activities involve repetitive movements of the hand.

It is necessary to reduce the force and relax the grip: in example for prolonged handwriting, use a big pen with an oversized, soft grip adapter in order to avoid to grip the pen tightly or press as hard on the paper.

Take frequent breaks, especially if doing a job that involves the use of an equipment that vibrates or that requires to exert a great amount of force.


Tendinitis | Prevention

Some cautiousness can help reducing the risk of tendinitis.

It is important to pay attention to the activities done/practiced, trying to avoid those which involve an excessive and continuous effort for the tendons.

In case of feeling ache while doing a particular movement, it is recommended to stop and rest immediately.

Also changing type of exercises or sport activity itself can be useful, choosing one that reduces the functional load of the inflamed tendon.

Articular traumas

Articular traumas | Prevention

Acute articular traumas can be prevented by toning the muscles that guarantee dynamic articular stability with proprioceptive exercises to better develop neuro-motorial control and aerobic training, a condition that is always necessary for helping to prevent accidents.
The principles already seen for arthrosis are the same for degenerative chondropathy: controlled body weight, correction of axial defects and incorrect foot contact with the ground, suitable posture and no excessive articulation overloading.
