Top Ten Products for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A joint that is frequently used, the wrist, is one of the most vulnerable parts of the body. The bones, ligaments, and nerves that run through the wrist are built to be highly flexible and of great tensile strength. But many times, repetitive actions or other conditions can damage the wrist or the parts of the wrist. One of the problems that arises from such is a situation is CTS or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

A narrow passage in the wrist, the carpal tunnel, functions as a passage for the median nerve that runs through the length of the arm. This nerve controls the movements of the arms and the digits of our hand. Excessive use of the wrist or some other condition affecting the wrist can cause the area around the tunnel to swell, which then exerts pressure on the tunnel, and in turn on the nerve.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be treated if it’s addressed by a medical professional on time. It worsens over time, and so if you feel numbness or tingling in your wrist, it is best to consult a doctor.

There are several ways of treating CTS based on the severity of the case. One of the most common is immobilization and medication, both of which can help reduce the swelling and ease the pressure of the nerve. Surgery is usually recommended in severe or last stage cases.

At Rehab Store, we have a wide range of products that can help you treat CTS by immobilization, can help you rehabilitate if you have undergone surgery for it, and can reduce the chances of it reoccurring in the future.
