What does Carpal Mean? The Carpal Solution – It Works!
Like many medical terms and words in scientific english, Carpal Tunnel is derived from the Greek word Karpos, which means wrist. Tunnel comes from the shape of the narrow passage surrounded mostly by bone and a strong ligament at the base of the hand under which the Median Nerve and nine tendons pass. The Median nerve and tendons combine to control precise feeling and movement in the fingers and hand. These bones and ligaments form a tight space, so when ever there is swelling of a tendon,the ligament or surrounding muscle or connective fascia tissue of the hand and wrist -painful Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often the result.
The word Syndrome in CTS comes from the fact that the pain, sleep interruption and weakness does not necessarily derive from a disease or one specific factor, but usually from a set of conditions know as repetitive stress induced strain and a host of possible metabolic conditions. In fact, there are over 15 different possible contributing factors to this frustrating condition. Hence the characterization as a “Syndrome” rather than a curable disease. It can not be cured – but can be managed effectively with non-invasive consistent and disciplined soft tissue therapy.
Repetitive stress often combines with metabolic conditions, such as diabetes, water retention or arthritis, to aggravate and inflame the soft tissue in and around the Carpal Tunnel. The swelling of the soft tissue compresses the Median Nerve against the tendons and the Transverse Carpal Ligament at the top of the Carpal Tunnel and brings on Carpal Tunnel Discomfort.
Carpal Solution Therapy gently decompresses and reshapes the soft tissue and relieves crowding of the Carpal Tunnel in weeks. Most people feel relief of their worst symptoms in days up to a few weeks. This proven Physical Therapyprovides the gentle consistent disciplined therapy needed over a six week protocol with minimum interruption to one’s busy life-style.
Carpal can refer to any of the bones of the carpus at the base of the hand and in the wrist.
Functional Anatomy: The wrist joint is composed of distal radial and ulnar surfaces, 8 carpal bones, and the proximal metacarpal bones. The distal carpal row consists of the following bones: hamate, capitate, trapezoid, and trapezium. The proximal row consists of the following bones: scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, and pisiform. The carpal bones are held together by a complex set of soft tissue including the interosseous, volar, and dorsal ligaments and a triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFC). There are over 27 bones that make up the anatomy of the hand and wrist. These are held together by the Transverse Carpal Ligament, Fascia Tissue, Muscle and Tendons of the hand, wrist and forearm. It is a complex web of soft and hard tissue that allows the miracle of hand dexterity to operate smoothly and without complication for most of our lives. We tend to take this miracle of precise movement for granted until something quits working the way it always has, then we wonder what is going on. The body also has a remarkable ability to heal itself naturally when the right kind of enabling therapy is applied. The Carpal Solution is over 97% effective in controlling Carpal Tunnel Symptoms in CTS sufferers without surgery or other risky and complicated procedures like oral pain medication or surgery
