Avoiding Carpal Tunnel

How can you keep from getting carpal tunnel? For some people, you just can't. You're already predisposed. Your bony canal is small, the nerves and the tendons have a fixed size. But you can avoid making things worse. Protect your hands. If you are a laborer or you do lots of things with your hands in your time at work or your time off and your past times, get some fingerless gloves, bicycle gloves - wear them inside your regular gloves. Also try to keep whatever it is that's pushing on that central part - just where the risk becomes the palm. You don't want to use an awl or a work implement right there, day in, day out.
