Are there any exercises to prevent Carpel Tunnel?

Wrist Circles. Bring your lower arms perpendicular out in front of you. Leave your arms stable and circle your hands with straight fingers 5 times in each direction. While standing put your palms flat on your desk with your middle fingers pointing towards you. With soft elbows, softly lean backwards while leaving your palms flat, so that you stretch your forearms. Go to where it feels comfortable and release all the tension in your body. Hold for 15 seconds and do wrist circles again.
