If you are a motorcyclist and you have carpal tunnel, there are some things that you can do that will help you. Number one, make sure you're moving those hands on those bars. That will also get good blood flow to the nerve and keep you from getting the carpal tunnel. But if you're having troubles, you may want to wear an extra pair of fingerless gloves inside your regular riding gloves. You may want to get rid of that vibration, which seems to make the carpal tunnel worse. Get some bar ends or now there are some new snakes of metal that can be put in the handlebars that decrease the vibration. Also, with carpal tunnel and on motorcycles, you want to make sure that you're really not leaning right where that median nerve is. That's that crease between the base of the thumb and moving over to where you have your little finger - sort of right there in the middle. Stay off of that. Move your hands frequently.
