I'm a musician (piano, clarinet, guitar, percussion, etc) and am therefore in danger of developing CTS. My professor showed me a movement to do after practicing which has helped relieve the tension. It's designed to realign the nerves in your arm. Start my holding your arm out straight in front of you, parallel to the ground, palm up. Bending your elbow, bring your hand up to about your chin and then back down slowly about 10 times. Next turn your palm down and, bending your elbow again, bring your hand in slowly towards your chest and back out again. Do these movements slowly several times with both arm. The soreness should fade significantly.
