If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, it is essential that you know some carpal tunnel syndrome exercises and stretches so that you don’t have to suffer in pain any longer. Coupled with possible medication, perhaps even surgery, these exercises and carpal tunnel syndrome stretches will help you to enjoy all the things you used to enjoy before suffering from carpal tunnel.
