About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Almost every tenth German between the ages of 40 and 70 knows the painful carpal tunnel syndrome, with women being affected five times more often than men. More and more patients want carpal tunnel syndrome therapy that does not require surgical intervention. Why?
Surgery is not always the best way
Surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome is a widespread method that often shows positive results in the short term. Nevertheless, many patients report recurring symptoms and postoperative complications in the long term. Therefore, there is a view that surgical intervention is not always the optimal solution and can alternatively be replaced by manual therapy if this is practicable.
It should be noted that one-off surgical procedures can potentially cause irreversible injury or damage that is often difficult to correct. Another relevant aspect that is often overlooked is the efficiency of manual therapy. This method has the same goal as surgery, which is to widen the carpal tunnel to allow more room for the nerve. The key difference, however, is that manual therapy is performed without surgery, medication, or potential side effects. This approach therefore offers a painless and non-invasive alternative.
The alternative can help quickly and easily
We recommend trying all available alternatives before undergoing surgery. A possible alternative is treatment with curpal®. Manual therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome shows positive results in 80 percent of people. Treatment with curpal® is particularly easy and time-saving.
curpal® enables independent treatment of the painful carpal tunnel syndrome without the risk of side effects. By using the curpal® cuff, the carpal tunnel is gently widened, which often leads to a quick relief of the symptoms.
The application is not complicated
The application of curpal® essentially has the same effect as an operation: The carpal tunnel is widened to give the nerve more space. This is not done through surgery, but through simple mechanical stretching. This stretch can quickly provide relief from symptoms. This method of mechanical stretching with aids is new in Germany. Stretching exercises are particularly well-known here.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs mainly in older people. Many people find doing exercises tiring. In such cases, curpal® can be a great relief.
