Relieve Carpal Tunnel stress with easy stretches demonstrated in the Woman's Day's video series.

Both at work and during our leisure time, our hours are increasingly spent typing away on our keyboards—which only ups the odds of getting carpal tunnel syndrome and other desk-related injuries. Here are some exercises to reduce the risk.

Woman's Day's video series has turned its attention to fighting the stress and tension that comes with sitting behind a desk for eight hours a day, five days a week. The above video explains some quick hand muscle exercises designed to reduce the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome, while a second video offers some 20-30 second exercises for stretching your back and chest muscles.
