Cock-Up Splints Carpal Tunnel Hand Supports or Wrist Braces

The most commonly recommended device historically for Carpal Tunnel Treatment has been what has come to be known as the Cock-Up Splint. Like, most carpal tunnel splints on the market today, the Cock-up Night Splints are cumbersome, rigid structures engineered to hold the wrists and hands “cocked-up” in a single position during sleep. Muscular skeletal research on the efficacy of these carpal tunnel wrist splints is mixed at best with some nagging issues that need to be addressed. Many carpal tunnel syndrome sufferers resort to wearing rigid splints if for no other reason than they are in desperation and need to try something that might help them sleep and work. Most Doctors when pressed will admit that the rigid orthotics and splints like the Cock-up Splints are not therapeutic and often actually worsen repetitive stress conditions, like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Most medical professionals that work with Carpal Tunnel patients know that immobilizing splints are not an effective treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Some will just skip the rigid splints step and refer people straight to carpal tunnel surgery. However, surgery should always be a last resort for any ailment, but this is especially true with Carpal Tunnel because the syndrome and symptoms return even after surgery. There is no permanent fix.

The rigid devices do provide some relief from pain that may result from movement, but offer no therapeutic benefit and often complicate CTS symptoms over time with hand and forearm muscle atrophy. The rigid devices also compress the injured tissue against a hard metallic frame or stiff fiberglass molded to the hand. This compression against a firm frame irritates already injured tissue and often increases swelling and lymphatic fluid build up.

Also, the compression splints restrict and inhibit blood circulation around injured tissue, normal circulation is critical to the body’s natural healing processes.

The Cock-Up Splint is designed to prevent the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome sufferer from curling up their hands at night during sleep. While the this rigid hand support can help prevent the curling of the hands during sleep, it also carries with it all the other downsides of a rigid bracing device. Also, most users report that they are no very comfortable to wear to bed. Partners also complain about the rigid devices that are worn to bed.

There is a new orthosis device on the market that has demonstrated over 97 percent customer satisfaction with people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome — This represents a staggering success rate considering that carpal tunnel surgery itself yields a satisfaction rate of only 40 to 60 percent among recipients.

This new kind of carpal tunnel splint therapy is known as the Carpal Solution and really is not a splint at all. It was developed by the notable inventor and leading musculoskeletal specialist, Dr. Clyde Morgan, to alleviate inflammation by means of a gentle pulling action at key trigger points on the palm of the hand.

As a flexible device it does not restrict movement or result in muscle atrophy. It also does not compress or irritate the soft tissue. It is comfortable and provides gentle stretching therapy consistently over a Six Week Protocol.

Most people feel relief of their worst symptoms within the first week of therapy and complete remission within the Six Week Medical Protocol allowing them to avoid surgery and manage their symptoms without the downtime, complications or risks associated with conventional treatments.

The Carpal Solution is better than the conventional wrist splints and braces because it provides just what is needed to the right places – That is gentle, but consistent therapeutic stretching.
