Kaley Cuoco reveals she has carpal tunnel syndrome from holding baby daughter Matilda

Kaley Cuoco recently shared that she has developed carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands from holding her daughter, Matilda. The actress, known for her role in “Big Bang Theory,” took to social media to give her fans a glimpse into her hands-free workout routine after her diagnosis. In a video posted on her trainer Ryan Sorenson’s Instagram account, Cuoco, wearing wrist braces, explained her injury and the need to modify her workouts. She and Sorenson demonstrated a hands-free workout, which included exercises such as running on the treadmill. Despite her injury, Cuoco showcased her fit physique and encouraged viewers to push through any obstacles and make no excuses. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched nerve and can result in numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and arm, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Following her injury, Cuoco and Sorenson focused on lower body and core exercises in their workouts. They emphasized the importance of finding ways to work around injuries and maintaining a positive mindset. Cuoco welcomed her first child, Matilda, with her partner Tom Pelphrey in March. The couple began dating in April 2022 and Cuoco described it as love at first sight. Despite not initially planning to have children, Cuoco expressed that she and Pelphrey both desired to start a family. Cuoco was previously married to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting from 2013 to 2016 and equestrian Karl Cook from 2018 to 2022.

The “Big Bang Theory” alum took to social media to give fans a glimpse into her hands-free workout routine Monday following her diagnosis.

“Hey guys, so some of you may know I have this, like, major wrist, hand injury from holding the baby. It’s a very real thing. Google it,” Cuoco, who wore a wrist brace on each hand, said in a video posted to her trainer Ryan Sorenson’s Instagram account.

“And I think the only thing to make them better is for us to start working out without using my hands. And without using any body weight on my hands, which sounds crazy, and how can you get a workout like that?” she continued. “But Ryan and I are gonna do it today and we’re gonna show you that you can still get a workout, even if you are injured.”

Despite her ailments, the actress showed off her fit physique in a pair of black leggings and a white muscle tee with “HAPPY” written on the front.

“And that is how you do a no-hands workout and still get your a— kicked,” Cuoco, who was covered in sweat, said at the end of the workout. “So, you can always do it. No excuses.”

“This was not a goal of mine,” she told Emmy magazine in May. “Then when we met, it was instantaneous — ‘Oh my God, I want to have a kid with you.’”

The actress continued, “We both wanted it so badly, which was not what I thought my life would be. I love my career and wanted to just keep living my life. But Tom came along, and something changed. We’re not twenty, so we felt like we probably couldn’t wait too long. Then we got so blessed — it happened right away.”
