Carpal Tunnel and You: What Gamers Need to Know

Hey, gamers!  Press pause for a second.  We need to have a talk about something that none of us really want to talk about:  Carpal tunnel syndrome.

That’s right.  The wrist thing.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) all comes down to one nerve in your wrist -- the median nerve, which controls movement and feeling in your thumb and movement in every finger except your pinky.  The median nerve runs the full length of the arm, but the part where it passes through the wrist is called the carpal tunnel.  When you make repetitive motions with your fingers and wrist, the carpal tunnel can swell.

Remember, swelling in the carpal tunnel is a primary cause for CTS, so do yourself a favor and give your hands and wrists a chance to relax for a minute or two.  Thumb through the menu, sort your inventory, or -- if you’re
