Do I have to rest from Work to Cure Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
I have Carpal Tunnel and need to be able to work. I cannot afford the downtime to rest or recover from a surgical procedure. Do I have to rest from work to cure Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? I hope there is another way.

Do I have to rest from work to cure Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Complete rest from work is the wrong answer for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Most people with this debilitating hand condition find that they experience muscle atrophy. So, when treating Carpal Tunnel naturally, it is important to stay active, so you do not experience further muscle atrophy.
Muscle atrophy complicates and lengthens the time required to treat CTS. Muscle does recover relatively quickly once the pressure is removed from the Median Nerve and normal hand use is resumed or continued. Patient studies have shown that most people start regaining grip strength within 2 – 3 weeks with the right kind of natural stretching therapy.
Rest from intense hand work can be helpful when treating CTS, but as one patient said,
“Rest is not practical when you have a profession!”
Of course if you have surgery, you have to rest from heavy work for anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks post-surgery to allow healing to take place undisturbed.
Most people are eager to avoid the downtime if they can, because, lets face it, we all have to make a living.
For most patients there is an easy way to treat CTS without downtime and without having to take time off of work. Doctors have worked with patients to develop a gentle stretching therapy that comes in a Six Week Treatment Kit. You simply put these unique stretching devices on your hand as prescribed in the Doctors’ instructions before you retire for sleep each night.
You set the tension of the device using an intuitive method that customizes the device and the stretching tension applied to the size and shape of your hand each night before going to bed. Then The Carpal Solution Stretching Devices apply gentle consistent stretching treatment to your hand passively during sleep.
No restrictive wrist splints or rigid hand braces that restrict movement are needed to be worn. In fact, wearing these rigid splints can lead to more muscle atrophy. They sometimes provide relief from discomfort for a week or two in the beginning, but in the long run Doctors have proven that Rigid Wrist Splints and Restrictive Hand Bracing make CTS worse for the majority of patients, lead to muscle atrophy and injure the soft tissue where the rigid device is pressing against the body.
These devices should be avoided altogether except if the patient is required to lift heavy objects frequently during work. In this case the rigid splint should only be worn during the time when lifting is required.
With the Carpal Solution you can access the best treatment recommended by Neurologist as: “The best first line treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.”
The great news is you can keep working as much as you may need to work!
During the first 2 – 3 weeks of the Carpal Solution Treatment, it is better to do lighter workloads with your hands if that is possible.
If you must continue to use your hands with intense workloads during the day, it is ok, but it may take longer to see results with the treatment. You can still achieve complete remission. However, it might require 10 to 12 weeks, instead of 6 weeks if you keep working intensely with your hands.
It is important to keep using your hands during the day, because activity during the day is good for your hands and helps to accelerate recovery from Carpal Tunnel when using the Carpal Solution therapeutic devices.
There is no need to worry and put off proactive treatment. You can get started treating yourself at home this week with a treatment developed by Doctors that is clinically documented, has no risks and works for 97% of patients.
The Carpal Solution also comes with a 30 day money back guarantee!
“The Carpal Solution Treatment is the Best First Line Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.”
Most people cure their worst symptoms within a week and get complete remission within 6 weeks. Then Carpal Tunnel Syndrome goes away for 2 to 7 years. When you work intensely with your hands 40 – 60 hours each week, the symptoms come back more quickly, usually within a year or two. The reason active people love the Carpal Solution, is it allows them to work as much as they might need to without worry and unnecessary downtime and without the risks associated with Carpal Tunnel Surgery and Steroid Injections.
CTS comes back for over 85% of people within 8 years even after a successful surgery. There is not much point of exposing one’s self to the risks of surgery only to find that it comes back. Second Surgical procedures have a success rate 20% lower than first surgeries. Third surgeries for CTS are not recommended by medical text books due to the formation of scar tissue.
So, in answer to your original question, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be treated and cured without resorting to extensive rest or downtime. Surgery can be avoided for 97% of people with CTS. There is no need to worry about the risks, downtime and career ending complications of Carpal Tunnel Surgery.
