The pain and stiffness of carpal tunnel syndrome can be debilitating. You can help carpal tunnel syndrome by improving lymph flow to help detox cellular waste from the tissues of the wrist. The wrist is one of the only joints that have no lymph nodes. This may be a partial reason why acidic cellular waste can build in the wrist irritating the transverse carpal ligament and median nerve. Manually activating the lymphatic system in the axilla and neck helps to detox cellular waste from the tissues of the wrist.
