Carpal tunnel syndrome – 91% of our patients would recommend curpal®

Contents

curpal® is one of the so-called manual therapies for carpal tunnel syndrome and is considered a promising addition to conservative therapy options. Because curpal® is a completely new treatment approach for which there are no studies yet, we asked our customers about their satisfaction. 297 responded – here are the numbers.

In total, we surveyed around 350 customers between October 2020 and March 2021, and we received 297 responses, including 63% women and 37% men.

When asked about the duration of use, 46% said they had used curpal® for 4 weeks, 51% indicated a period of use of 6 weeks, the rest used 8 weeks or longer. You have to know that the minimum application period should be 6 weeks.

In the case of complaints that are more severe or have existed for a longer period of time, it may take longer for the symptoms to subside.

How often have you used curpal®?

The recommendation for the application of curpal® is 3 x 3 x 3, which means three times a day, for example in the morning, at noon and in the evening, three times three minutes of treatment in a row, each with a short break. Two thirds of users also implemented this recommendation, a third treated less frequently. This group contained most of the patients who felt that the treatment did not meet their expectations.
