carpal tunnel syndrome - treatment
An effective alternative to common nocturnal support splints - which simply prevent the hand’s bending - is curpal. curpal expands and thus relieves the carpal tunnel.
If the complaints are minor to medium and come and go, physicians will recommend wearing a wrist-support splint or avoiding exposure to specific strain. Conventional wrist-support splints are to be worn at night because this is when the complaints are worst due to the hand bending while the patient is sleeping. The splint serves to prevent suchlike bending. Compared to cortisone treatment or surgery, wrist-support splints bear few side effects only. This is this conventional treatment’s advantage.
However, the drawback is that the splint will provide for relief in the near term - but in most cases the relief will not be lasting. Frequently, patients suffer from their complaints again soon. And because all that happened was preventing the hand from being bent at night without expanding the carpal tunnel, precious time got lost. To that comes that very few people get along well with the wrist-support splint. Most of them feel that it disrupts their sleep. However, the splint must not be worn in daytime as it bears the risk of the wrist stiffening as a result of the treatment. Remember: a joint’s normal function is to facilitate locomotion!
curpal is a far more effective and comfortable alternative. Opposite to wrist-support splints that simply prevent the wrist from bending by immobilising it, curpal exerts pressure on the heel and back of the hand and thus proactively expands and relieves the carpal tunnel.
