Carpal tunnel syndrome therapy yourself


Almost one in ten Germans between the ages of 40 and 70 suffers from carpal tunnel syndrome, with women being affected around five times more often than men. Women in particular want a carpal tunnel syndrome therapy that does not require surgical intervention. Three things you should know.

1. Carpal tunnel syndrome therapy: start treatment early!

In carpal tunnel syndrome, the median nerve becomes trapped. This nerve causes pain.

In carpal tunnel syndrome, a certain nerve, the median nerve, is constricted in the wrist area, causing discomfort and pain. If the symptoms persist, surgery is required. Unfortunately, complications are not uncommon. Every carpal tunnel syndrome requires therapy. Without effective carpal tunnel syndrome therapy, the suffering progresses.

In advanced carpal tunnel syndrome, damage to the median nerve occurs. This nerve runs through the carpal tunnel together with various tendons. The median nerve is responsible for the sense of touch and sensation on the palm of the hand as well as for controlling certain hand and finger muscles.

When carpal tunnel syndrome begins, the carpal tunnel becomes too narrow and pressure is placed on the nerve: the trapped nerve begins to hurt. The pain is accompanied by tingling, numbness and discomfort in the thumb, index and middle fingers; often the whole hand feels furry and swollen. In addition, gripping movements become more difficult as the ball of the thumb recedes.

If you feel these signs , then it is high time for carpal tunnel syndrome therapy . If carpal tunnel syndrome is left untreated, the condition becomes chronic.

If carpal tunnel syndrome is diagnosed through tests and measurements, the doctor will usually prescribe a wrist splint for the affected person. This splint prevents the hand from bending at night .

The wrist splint can provide short-term relief, but it is not an effective treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome. On the contrary: If you wear the wrist splint during the day, you risk your wrist becoming stiff due to a lack of movement. If the symptoms do not improve, surgery is recommended.

If you are one of those people who want carpal tunnel syndrome therapy without surgery, you should read on. This is how you can prevent the possible complications of carpal tunnel surgery.

With curpal®, a gentle therapy is now on the market that can effectively treat painful carpal tunnel syndrome without surgery . The cuff widens the carpal tunnel, which usually provides rapid relief from the symptoms.

The cuff for carpal tunnel syndrome therapy without surgical intervention is sold in Germany under the name curpal®.

This therapy essentially does the same thing as surgery: it widens the carpal tunnel. But not through a cut, but mechanically. And this is exactly what can lead to rapid and noticeable relief of symptoms.

This method of mechanical stretching is new in Germany, but has been used in the USA for some time. In fact, the curpal® cuff is a further development of the American device that has been known and used in the USA as an alternative treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome for many years.

3. You can carry out the new carpal tunnel syndrome therapy yourself at home.

The cuff of the curpal® system is shaped like the letter C. As a user, you slide your hand into this C and inflate an air cushion in the curpal® handpiece using the hand pump provided.

This creates tension in the hand, which stretches the carpal tunnel. The stretching gives the nerve running through the carpal canal (median nerve) more space and the pressure on the nerve decreases.

The result is that the symptoms of nerve pressure such as tingling in the fingers, pain at night or numbness can subside very quickly. With curpal®, carpal tunnel syndrome therapy is possible without surgical intervention and without wearing an annoying wrist splint!

curpal® is the first option in Germany to treat your carpal tunnel syndrome without surgery. The cuff has been on the market since autumn 2016. Too short for representative studies on the effects. However, users confirm that the success of treatment for incipient carpal tunnel syndrome is often noticeable after just a few days.

For people who want carpal tunnel syndrome therapy without surgery and who are willing to invest a few minutes every day in their carpal tunnel syndrome therapy, curpal® is a good solution.
