5. Ice It
Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by swelling, and ice helps reduce swelling naturally. Set aside some time each day to ice your wrist and hand for about 10 minutes. You can use a bag of frozen veggies. If it’s too cold to put directly on your skin, wrap it in a dish towel.
Some doctors also suggest alternating between ice and heat. To do this, you’ll get two buckets. Fill one with hot water and the other with ice water. Plunge your hand into the hot water for about 30 seconds, then move it to the ice water. Rotate back and forth 10-15 times.
