Is there a way to prevent Carpal Tunnel Surgery?
I have high Deductible Health Insurance. I could afford years of natural therapy and still be ahead financially, if I can avoid surgery. I don’t like the idea of Carpal Tunnel Surgery with risks and downtime anyway.
Is there a natural treatment for Carpal Tunnel that I could use my Health Savings Account to purchase?
Is there a way to prevent Carpal Tunnel Surgery?
Answers by Doctors at First Hand Medical
More and more people find themselves in this dilemma. With high deductible health insurance becoming the norm, the cost of surgery becomes a major financial event that most people cannot afford. Some people save up all the surgical events for one year, but that is not practical either with recovery times, the overlap makes it nearly impossible to manage.
Your instincts to avoid the risks, potential complications and downtime associated with Carpal Tunnel Surgery are well founded. Carpal Tunnel Surgery has a success rate of around 60% based on patient surveys and Carpal Tunnel Symptoms return for over 90% of people within 6 months to 8 years.
Second surgeries have an even lower success rate, coming in at around 40% from a patient’s perspective. This is due to scar tissue formation in the first surgical procedure.
Third surgical events are strongly discouraged by Medical Text Books due to, again, you guessed it scar tissue.
When patients realize the long-term prognosis associated with Carpal Tunnel Surgery, most say, “There has to be a better way!”
So, lets summarize, for a chronic Syndrome like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (chronic means it comes back over and over again), you need to have a “Go To Natural Carpal Tunnel Treatment” that does not have:
- Does not involve risks,
- Does not result in scar tissue formation and
- Does not involve months of rehabilitation.
Indeed, there is a better way to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Doctors have developed a “home remedy”, so to speak, for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It is called: The Carpal Solution Nighttime Stretching Treatment. This treatment program takes Six Weeks for most people to put their Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in complete remission for years.
Many patients ask, “What do you mean, ‘put Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in remission’?
It is really a simple concept. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome comes back no matter how you treat it. There is no permanent fix. So, the key is: putting it in remission with a minimally invasive treatment method. That means a treatment with no risks and no downtime.
So, if you can put your Carpal Tunnel Symptoms in remission for 2 – 7 years with a simple home stretching treatment that you do during sleep, you are way ahead of the game – No downside, No downtime, No risks, No Scar Tissue and No complications.
The Carpal Solution Nighttime Stretching Treatment works for 97% of people. It was developed by Doctors working directly with Patients. It takes 6 weeks to heal most soft tissue injures.
So, the Carpal Solution comes in a Six Week Treatment Package. Most people put their worst symptoms in remission within 3 weeks and get complete remission within 6 weeks. Then Carpal Tunnel Symptoms go away for 2 – 7 years.
Some patients ask, “Isn’t this just treating the symptoms then? I don’t want to just treat the symptoms.”
The answer is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a collection of symptoms caused by inflammation and injured soft tissue contracting and pinching the nerve. When you relieve the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel that is because the pressure on the Median Nerve has been relieved. Trapped inflammation is dispersed and carried away but a return to nutrient rich blood circulation and injured soft tissue becomes supple and flexible again. Once that pressure is off, the symptoms of this syndrome disappear and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is in remission.
With the Carpal Solution Nighttime Stretching Treatment you jump start your body’s natural healing process and eliminate the cause of CTS at the root. It doesn’t mean CTS won’t return, remember, CTS returns even after a surgical procedure. There is no permanent fix, but a natural treatment that puts CTS in remission for years is a big win for this chronic hand condition.
Other Treatment Options Your Doctor May Offer – The Risks and The Prognosis
Some of the other treatment options for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome like Steroid Injections are ok options in an emergency situation. However, steroid treatment has too many risks and downsides to rely upon for a chronic syndrome like Carpal Tunnel. The benefits of steroid injections generally last for 2 to 3 months, and then the symptoms come right back.
Medical text books recommend that patient have no more than 2 injections of concentrated steroids in any one joint due to weakening of the joint and joint deterioration that has been observed with repeated exposure. So, again steroid injections for Carpal Tunnel are only really justified in an emergency situation, when you need a stop gap until you can find a better solution for treatment of Carpal Tunnel.
Also, it should be noted that Steroid Injections can be quite painful when administered. Some patients find it painful, others do not.
Finally, the success rate for short-term relief of CTS. Steroids work to relieve the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel for a few months for about 50% to 60% of people
Sometimes help in the beginning because the immobilize the hand and wrist and restrict movement. By eliminating movement, the discomfort from movement of the inflamed hand and wrist is eliminated initially. However, there are several downsides with these rigid hand braces.
- It is hard to function normally at home or at work with a restrictive brace on your hand.
- It is highly visible causing most people to question what is going on with your hand.
- These splints prevent movement which leads to muscle atrophy in a few weeks. Muscle atrophy complicates the recovery from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
- Any rigid device that is tightly compressed against the soft tissue will injure the soft tissue over time. Injuring the soft tissue due to compression against rigid plastic, fiberglass or metal leads to more inflammation and brittle soft tissue, both of which make Carpal Tunnel worse.
In short, these rigid wrist splints that you find in every pharmacy and are often a Doctor’s first recommendation for the treatment of CTS, are best avoided.
As anyone who has used these wrist splints and rigid braces knows, they make Carpal Tunnel worse in the long run.
The Doctors at First Hand Medical recommend that you avoid use of this category of splinting unless you are doing significant heavy lifting and then the rigid brace can protect your hand and wrist for injury from repeatedly lifting heavy objects. Otherwise you should stay away from these devices that go by many different names that include: Cock-up Splints, Rigid Wrist Supports, Rigid Hand Braces and Wrist Splints.
There is no reason to expose yourself to the risks, downtime, scar tissue and long rehabilitation periods or repeat surgical procedures that are common with Carpal Tunnel Surgery. Surgery can be prevented with a nighttime stretching treatment in the comfort and convenience of home. This is a home remedy developed by Doctors that works for most people.
97% of people can prevent Carpal Tunnel Surgery and avoid the risks, downtime and relatively long rehabilitation period associated with this Carpal Tunnel Release Surgical Procedure.
There is no reason to go on suffering and worrying and there is no reason to be rushed into a surgical procedure with such a low success rate until you have tried this proven treatment developed by Doctors called: The Carpal Solution Treatment.
Some patients call the Carpal Solution: “My Carpal Tunnel Cure”. However, as we explained above, technically, from a medical point of view – “There is no Cure for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.” However, the Carpal Solution Nighttime Stretching Treatment would be the next best thing to a “Carpal Tunnel Cure”.
If you have tried the Carpal Solution Treatment and you are in the 3% for whom the Carpal Solution does not work, then your best bet is likely surgery. The only way to know, is to put the Carpal Solution to the test.
From a Financial Point of View – You have nothing to lose trying The Carpal Solution.
The Carpal Solution comes with a money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying the Carpal Solution. The Carpal Solution is also reimbursed by Health Insurance. If you have a high deductible health plan then you can use your Health Savings Account (HSA) to purchase the Carpal Solution Treatment. With a 97% treatment success rate, a money back guarantee, health insurance reimbursement and a the ability to use pre-tax dollars to purchase the Carpal Solution Treatment using your HSA account, you really cannot go wrong.
On another front, with a high deductible health plan coverage, you could afford decades of treatment every night with the Carpal Solution, before you reached breakeven with the potential out-of-pocket costs of Carpal Tunnel Surgery and then you would be facing another surgery procedure, so Surgery never makes economic sense for people in this situation. The reality is that most people only use the Carpal Solution once every 2 to 7 years.
The Carpal Solution Treatment is a great economical option for all people with the money back guarantee.
Once they are better, most patients say, “The Carpal Solution was the best medical purchase I have ever made.”
The Carpal Solution makes sense in every possible way.
That is why Neurologists say,
“The Carpal Solution is the best first line of treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.”
Don’t go on Suffering with CTS, get the relief and peace of mind that you deserve with the Doctors’ Carpal Solution Nighttime Stretching Treatment.
