Therapy of carpal tunnel syndrome

Although carpal tunnel syndrome is widespread, it is often not taken seriously enough. If you ignore the symptoms, you risk permanent damage to nerves and muscles. So treat it in time.

treat yourself

therapy without surgery

Affected people know this: They wake up at night because their hand has fallen asleep again. Shaking and massaging helps in the beginning. Over time, the pain gets worse, even during the day. So far, only surgery has been available for carpal tunnel patients. This is different now. With curpal® there is a gentle, effective and risk-free treatment alternative.

Treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome step 1

1. Carpal tunnel is stretched & widened

With a mechanically generated pressure on the back of the hand, curpal® stretches the carpal ligament running across from the ball of the hand to the edge of the hand on the inside of the hand and thus widens the carpal tunnel.

2. Pressure on the nerve decreases

The nerve now has more space in the widened carpal tunnel and the pressure is relieved. The pressure was the cause of the pain and discomfort.

3. Pain and tingling will subside

As a result, the pain decreases or disappears completely. If they ever reappear, the carpal tunnel can be stretched again with curpal®.


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.

curpal® - FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Is curpal® an alternative to surgery?

The classic indication for carpal tunnel syndrome is surgery. Treatment with curpal® can make an operation unnecessary.

Does treatment with curpal® have any side effects?

Treatment with curpal® has no side effects. If necessary, you can use curpal® in consultation with a doctor treating you. This is especially true for people with osteoporosis.

Does the health insurance company cover the costs for curpal®

Although curpal® has a medical approval, it is not yet listed as an aid in the catalog for reimbursable products. For this reason, the acquisition costs of the device are not routinely covered by health insurance companies. However, we recommend that you always ask your own health insurance company.

How should curpal® be used?

curpal® should initially be used approx. 3 x 3 x 3 times a day for 6 to 8 weeks: You take curpal® three times a day and inflate the device three times with each use and allow the stretching to take effect for three minutes each time. The symptoms often subside significantly within the first 3-6 weeks, so that the treatment can then be reduced. After about 8 weeks, treatment with curpal® is required either as a preventive measure or only after the pain symptoms have returned. The effort required to use curpal® is low, 3 x 3 minutes per application are sufficient.

Are there studies that have examined the effectiveness of curpal®?

curpal® is one of the so-called manual therapies. A prospective randomized study comes to the conclusion that manual therapy, which also includes the use of curpal®, is just as effective as surgery. The study compared the effects of a surgical procedure with weekly manual therapies.

In the study, 50 of the 100 participants underwent surgery. All had pain and sensory disturbances in the supply area of the median nerve for at least 6 months. According to the study, after 3 months, the manually treated patients even reported a lower level of pain than the operated patients. The results of this study are consistent with the feedback from our patients.
