Applying ice to the wrist can be beneficial for reducing blood flow. This can aid in managing swelling, numbing hand pain, and slowing nerve activity. One time to use ice can be after doing carpal tunnel exercises. You may be able to help ease swelling and pain as you strengthen the wrist muscles and stretch the carpal ligament. You can also apply ice during the early stages of carpal tunnel to help get pain relief.
Rest the Affected Area
Since extreme or repetitive wrist motion can cause carpal tunnel syndrome, resting your affected wrist and hand can help ease numbness and pain. Keep the affected area in a neutral, resting position as much as you can. Doing this for some time can give you pain relief.
