  • When I put my hand on the wall I get a sharp pain in my wrist, I don’t feel it when bending my wrist but when I put my hand on ground I get a sharp pain in my wrist. Please help.

  • I’m a nail tech and my carpal tunnel woke me up twice last night and was hurting in places it hasn’t before. It was awful! I also sleep on my back when I hear is better for it! Thank you for this

  • This was very helpful I thought I was dying. Just some good old muscle fatigue, guess I’ll just chill for a day. Great Video btw!!!

  • Yay early squad. Omg first time ever I missed the previous video. I am glad I compensated it today. Sir, can you make a video about OSPAP course for international pharmacists interested in getting licensed in the UK.

  • My fingers go numb and sting when I make a fist. Welding all day hurts. I thought it was gonna go away it’s been 3 weeks non stop pain

  • Thank you so much for posting. Your videos have brought me relief in the aches and pains I suffered but also relieving my anxiety because I have hope there’s a solution �� I’m pregnant and developed what I guess is carpel tunnel. Numbing, tingling, and some pinching pains from forearm down to finger tips. This has caused me to wake up middle of the night totally freaked out because I can’t feel my hand at all. And with the pregnancy swelling of water retention ( I’m 37 weeks 2 days) it’s amplified and feels like it’s going to explode or fall off lol..

  • Super thanks to this video. I will always watch/follow this video as the first time I did it, It gives me so much relief. More power and stay safe during these crazy days. Love from The Philippines ���� ❤️ ��

  • Ive been suffering from carpal tunnel ever since my early 20’s, and right now my left hand is always tingling slightly. I can still feel things, but even driving and cutting the grass flares it up and it goes numb. I never knew why the normal stretches didn’t work for me. After your chest stretch, I felt a subtle and brief relief of the tingling in my hand.

    Editafter doing a couple excersies, I’d say the tingling went from a 4/10 to a 3. Definitely will keep doing this and see if there’s improvment. Carpal tunnel has taken a lot of things I used to enjoy away from me.

  • Thank you. Over The break I’ve been playing video games wayy too much and now my fingers and wrists hurt right away when I type with them. I alternate fingers so I can type longer but I hope this will help.

  • Mine is pain on my elbow and numbness on my thumb, index and middle fingger. Theres also pain on my index finger whenever i fold it. So i’m thinking what this is its like mixture of carpal and cubital. Be i don’t know what stretching i will do.

  • Hi!
    I had tarsal tunnel syndrome. Your video helped a lot.
    Now, i am a beginner at playing guitar (i love playing it). A while back my right hand’s pinky finger started tingling and then i tried ulnar nerve flossing, within a week symptoms disappeared (stopped playing guitar too).

    Now, can i perform this carpal tunnel stretches just as a precautionary measure so that i can continue my guitar?

    Can these stretches irritate my nerves?

  • These are just amazing. Thank you so much Dr Jo for helping people with great exercises. I have personally found amazing pain relief from your videos.
    When doing the ulnar and radical deviation, I get pain in one hand when twisting upwards. It came after I cut the garden hedge with extended hedge trimmer for 2-3 hours (it’s one of the worst tools!). Also have general pain around upper back and neck area. Would there be additional exercises needed to relieve the ulnar/radial pain?

  • I played destiny 2 last night and started to get tingling shooting sensation in my left thumb (keyboard side) is this just because of a long gaming session or more serious?

  • Greetings thanks so much for this. I have carpal tunnel and I write a lo.t Are these enough for me to do regularly? I’m middle aged and I also game online which I have had to stop because of the pain.

  • Thank you!

    After breaking my fifth metacarpal the carpian sindrom pain and numbness came back…now with this stretching & exercises i m able to sleep better!

  • Thank you Thank you Thank you! I’ve been gardening a bunch during COVID and really tweaked my wrist/fingers. These stretches have been invaluable. Much Love from Sunny San Diego!

  • really helps ease how tense my wrists are every time i do this. since i draw alot, especially with the wrist, it’s been causing problems for my hand/wrist alot. so i feel like i should’ve taken my friend’s advice to actually draw with my arm instead to avoid any future problems like this.

  • I’ve learned more from Doctor Jo, and Mr. Jeff Cavalier from Athlean X over the last six or so months than I learned in grades 6-12 combined. Non negotiable.

  • This was a fantastic video! I am an energy healer/reiki practitioner and I have a how-to channel on youtube. I was asked about doing a video for wrist pain but I really want to just send them to you (and I will make a video and put links to this one in it.) Namasté Wonderful job!

  • I do have it which is why I had to quit pc gaming. I had to wear a restrain for my right hand for a while. I can’t write 7 mins straight without pain. I switch to console which has really help.

  • I love the idea of this being “for gamers”. Obviously it’s helpful for anyone who sits for a long time and uses a mouse and/or keyboard, but I feel like gamers are the most stubborn about doing this kind of stuff or are just uninformed. 10/10 would stretch again

  • I didn’t even know about this my my table is a 90 degree table so my elbow is on the other side so my arm is flat, guess I might not get it

  • hey I have a problem im in physical therapy and have been training to try to improve this for a long time but im having ring and pinky discomfort in the mouse hand I got tests done saying no nerve damage so far but then I got acupuncture and the guy enflamed the hell out of my nerve and now im struggling to do anything at the computer what should any suggestions? io have been doing the wrist exercise videos thanks

  • hey i just got done pitching for baseball and my thumb, pointer finger and middle finger are all numb and tingly and nothing will make it go away do you have any tips or anything to do?

  • I feel a little nerve movement in my arm when I press w with my middle finger. It’s almost like a tingle but I’m not sure. Do I have early carpal tunnel and what can I do to fix it?

  • my wrist always cracked if I moved it a certain way, and after I did just a couple stretches it started to go away! I will do them everyday from now on
