Many Repetitive Strain Injuries are caused by recreational or occupational activities requiring repetitive or static motion involving the upper extremity (fingers, hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder) against varying levels of resistance, including awkward wrist angles, vibration, temperature extremes, or site-specific stress, and in most cases can be prevented. 

Even if symptoms have already exhibited themselves, in most cases, they can be alleviated with the proper stretch/exercise regimen. When used as directed, the FLEXTEND® Training Systems lengthen the short, restrictive, overdeveloped muscles and fascia that have lost their original range of motion due to activities that require repetitive and/or static motion. At the same time, FLEXTEND® strengthens and conditions the opposing weak, underdeveloped muscles. By creating a balance between the muscle and tendon structures in the hand, arm and shoulder, you can often greatly reduce or eliminate the compression of the finger, hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder structures, allowing the body's natural healing processes to function.

University and Private Testing has shown that the FLEXTEND® Training Systems, which include injury specific stretch and exercise programs, can help alleviate the symptoms of pain, numbness and loss of strength in many individuals suffering with recreational or occupationally-induced Repetitive Strain injuries, including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

People who already have even moderate-to-severe symptoms caused by Repetitive Strain injuries have used FLEXTEND® with great success. Many users have reported that their symptoms have been totally eliminated in as little as 2-3 weeks and used successfully for post-surgery rehabilitation. (By Individuals, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Massage Therapists, general practitioners and Surgeons.)

FLEXTEND® is the key to preventing invasive treatments like surgery, but for those that have surgery, using FLEXTEND® for post-op therapy allows the user to return to normal activities in less than half the time typically associated with carpal tunnel surgery, trigger finger surgery or other finger, hand and wrist surgeries. Many individuals that have suffered from hand/wrist fractures have also used FLEXTEND® once they have been removed from a cast to regain strength and mobility in the affected area.

The FLEXTEND® programs can help correct biomechanical imbalances throughout the entire upper extremity, reducing impinged nerves, blood vessels and other soft tissues in order to allow the body to heal. By reducing the impingement of soft tissue structures between the various anatomical structures inside the finger, wrist, elbow and shoulder joints, normal vascularity returns, bringing healing nutrients and oxygen to the damaged structures.
