That’s why it’s crucial to learn how to keep your hands healthy for as long as
possible. Follow these 6 tips to protect your hands.
1. AVOID WRIST FLEXION
Bending your wrist in any direction increases pressure in the carpal tunnel.
Working with your wrist bent out toward your little finger is called ulnar
deviation, which also increases this pressure.
2. SELECT THE RIGHT TWEEZERS
Specific tweezer features can reduce carpal tunnel compression. Look for
3. REDUCE YOUR GRIP
A forceful pinch grip has been shown to increase pressure in the carpal
tunnel; this pressure is even higher when combined with wrist ulnar
deviation (when the wrist is bent out toward the pinky finger).
Finding a high-quality tweezer that opens/closes easily can mean the
difference between numbness and tingling during lash appointments and
no pain at all. Whenever possible, try them out first.
4. MODIFY YOUR ERGONOMIC ENVIRONMENT
Constantly modifying your ergonomic environment helps avoid structural
damage in specific muscles by allowing for different muscle parts of your
body to be active.
For example, instead of using the same tweezer every appointment, switch
it up once in a while. You can alternate between stools and pillows too.
5. WORK IN OPTIMAL TEMPERATURE
Another aggravating risk factor associated with CTS is exposure to cold.
Avoid positioning your neck, shoulders and hands directly in the draft of an
air conditioner or working in cold environments.
Make it a habit to take sufficient breaks between appointments. Stretch
breaks are the most helpful intervention for hand/wrist pain as it helps
increase blood flow and reduce formation of trigger points.
If you have mild carpal tunnel symptoms, you should be gently stretching 3-
5 times per day.
