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.
