The symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome devastate the lives of millions of people each year and costing billions annually due to lost time from work, job loss, surgery and rehabilitation.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? It is a painful, disabling disorder caused by the impingement of the median nerve that supplies function and feeling to the thumb, index, middle and one-half of the ring finger.

In many cases, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by an imbalance of between the agonist and antagonist muscle groups surrounding the median nerve. When left untreated, the condition leads to pain, numbness, tingling, paresthesia (pins and needles) stiffness, tenderness, swelling, lack of coordination, loss of grip strength and muscle atrophy of the thenar eminence (muscle wasting). It is a major disorder causing significant disability to people on a worldwide scale and a subject of growing research in the medical and physical therapy communities.

There are many pathways that lead to a muscle imbalance in the hand, and most significant are tasks that require static (non-moving) or repetitive flexion of the fingers and wrists against resistance.

Although the disorder is significantly debilitating, effective treatments do exist. Those with the most scientific support target symptoms by restoring muscle balance in the hand and wrist. Most often a combination of stretching and strengthening exercises like FLEXTEND is enough to completely eliminate or drastically improve symptoms.
