Hours in the car can cause 'Carpal tunnel syndrome' and that the risk increases if the motorist talk on cell phone while driving.
Repeated, prolonged gripping of anything-whether a steering wheel or a tool can contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome
Reseachers at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas have found out that there are activities one can do and modifications one can make to help alleviate the risk of developing carpal tunnel.
Few steps to ease the problem:
-switch the hand you drive with, periodically using left and then your right.
-keep you hand in line with your elbow and your wrist straight.
If we imagine steering wheel as a clock, the best position to put your wrist in would actually be at three o'clock and nine o'clock.
According to experts those who have developed this syndrome can reverse them by making some changes
Experts suggest that one must use an earpiece or headset to overcome this problem
