When can I expect relief from Carpal Tunnel Symptoms?

There are some many different causes and contributing factors to each case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, that everyone responds somewhat differently to the Carpal Solution Nighttime Stretching Treatment. There some common categories.

The Sweet Spot

Most people (75% – 80%) get relief of their worst symptoms within two to three weeks and then complete remission of the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) within six weeks. This is the goal, to put CTS in complete remission.
Once this chronic syndrome is in “Complete Remission” the symptoms will stay in remission for most people for 2 – 7 years.

Early Responders

About 12 – 16% of people get relief of their worst symptoms in the first 2-3 days and Complete Remission within 3 weeks. It is important for these people to complete the full six-week protocol to put CTS in remission for the longest time possible. As most people know, CTS comes back even after a successful surgical procedure for over 90% of people. CTS almost always comes back. There is no permanent fix, so it is important to put CTS in remission for up to 7 years by completing the 6 Week Protocol.

Persistent Symptoms

Less than 12% of people have what we Doctors call “Persistent Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome”. When a person has persistent symptoms of CTS, it takes 3 weeks to 5 weeks to put their worst symptoms behind them. Then after 6 weeks, they will be anywhere from 40% better to 80% better, depending on many circumstances.

There are five important factors to keep in mind if you are in this group.

Jeana from austin says that after following the carpal solution persistent treatment protocol she is completely better after ten weeks

Soft Tissue Transition

Less than 3% of people go through what the Doctors call “The Soft Tissue Transition”. In this case, patients get worse before they get better. This seems counterintuitive and causes some people to stop using the Carpal Solution and run to the Surgeon. However, this is the wrong response. It actually means, the Carpal Solution is working and you can get complete remission without exposing yourself to the risks, downtime and long rehabilitation periods associated with Carpal Tunnel Surgery.   Surgery can be a long dark alley of dread, pain and repeat surgical procedures.

When a patient starts stretching injured soft tissue (muscles, fascia tissue, cartilage and connective tissue), even the most gentle stretching can sometimes generate additional inflammation for a short time. The temporary increase in inflammation puts increased pressure on the Median Nerve.

The Doctors at First Hand Medical have developed a Separate Set of Instructions or Medical Protocol for patients that are experiencing this increased discomfort associated with “Soft Tissue Transition”

By following the Doctors’ Soft Tissue Protocol provided with a url link in the instructions with The Carpal Solution Nighttime Stretching Program, you can move forward with confidence knowing Doctors are guiding your path to complete recovery and remission of your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

You can also email us requesting a copy of the Doctors’ Protocol for Managing The Soft Tissue Transition. The cost is normally $29.95 for this 18 page document written by Doctors, but to our customers we send it free via email.  You can also find it online on our website by clicking Here:

airline pilot says The Carpal Solution is the only non-surgical technique that really works well. I began to see relief after the first night of use

My Carpal Tunnel pain was so bad that I had tingling sensations in my hand all day and night. I’ve tried other conventional carpal tunnel techniques, including the braces and splints and have not had any success.

The Carpal Solution is the only non-surgical technique that really works well. I began to see relief after the first night of use. I wore it every night for two weeks and now wear it every three or four nights.”

In Summary, Since each person has their own unique hand use pattern, anatomy variations and contributing physiological conditions, every one responds somewhat differently to Carpal Solution Nighttime Stretching Treatment.

However, there are some common generalities that apply. In mild cases complete relief of symptoms has frequently been experienced in four or five nights. In moderate cases, symptom control has been achieved in ten days to two weeks. While in chronic cases, full relief may take up to three or four weeks.

Even though patients often feel totally relieved of symptoms early in the protocol, it is recommended that you follow the full Soft Tissue Therapy program to achieve maximum long-term benefit and prevent the return of symptoms.

Soft tissue healing and reshaping is a gradual process that requires six weeks for the natural process to be accomplished. The complete Six Week Protocol consists of wearing the Carpal Solution every night for two weeks, then every-other-night for the following four weeks. This Protocol was developed by the Doctors working with patients based on firsthand experience in the trenches of medicine.

Over 87% of CTS sufferers find complete relief of their symptoms after following the Six Week Protocol. Once it goes away it will stay away for 2 – 7 years for most.

Interestingly, about five percent of CTS sufferers report somewhere between 40 – 80% relief of their symptoms after the Six Week Protocol, but have lingering mild symptoms. They are grateful to have the relief of their worst symptoms, but are looking for something more. These users report that after using the Carpal Solution for another Six Weeks (a total of twelve weeks) in combination with the Persistent Symptoms Protocol, they have been able to eliminate all their symptoms. The goal is complete remission of the symptoms so it will go away for a long time.

As discussed above Doctors refer to this phenomenon as “Persistent Carpal Tunnel Symptoms”. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is cyclical and so once people break the cycle by increasing the flexibility of the soft tissue around the Carpal Tunnel and dispersing the lymphatic fluids that create pressure on the Median Nerve – The body returns to its normal healing process. The Carpal Tunnel Condition will go away for two to seven years for most patients.

An HVAC Technician who got complete relief in 9 weeks, said,

“As an HVAC Technician I depend on my hands for my work and I am so grateful for the Carpal Solution.

I would have never believed that following the Carpal Solution Six Week Carpal Tunnel Stretching Program would have relieved any of my symptoms.

But once I completed the Six Week Protocol and 80% of my symptoms were gone. I was ecstatic that I could work a full day again without serve pain. I was confident that if I kept going I could get all my symptoms under control, even that annoying numbness at the finger tips.

I understand that can be one of the last symptoms to go away. The surgeon that I talked to said it could take nine months to a year for the numbness at my finger tips to subside, even after a ‘successful Carpal Tunnel Surgery’. I thought wow, that is a long time to wait even after a successful surgery.

As an HVAC Technician I depend on my hands for my work and I am so grateful for the Carpal Solution.

So, when I experienced complete relief from the numbness and everything in just 9 weeks, I knew the Carpal Solution was the right program for me. When you think about it, passive carpal tunnel stretching exercise during sleep, makes a lot of sense.

I have to admit that at first, it just seem too easy, too good to be true.

Believe me, It really works and I was a skeptic, but given the prospects of repeated surgeries and long rehab periods, I figured why not give The Carpal Solution a try. Well, I did and now I could not be happier. I am sleeping through the night again, I do not drop things any more. I can do all the things I used to take for granted. The best part – No DOWNTIME. I cannot afford to be off work for weeks. My family depends on me.

Even though it took me 9 weeks, it was so worth it! I tell all my friends about the Carpal Solution!”

Anthony experienced the Soft Tissue Transition, where his symptoms got worse initially due to increased inflammation. He stuck with it using the Soft Tissue Transition Protocol and got complete relief despite working on a computer 6 days a week for 10 – 14 hours a day while remodeling his new home when he was not working. If the Carpal Solution works for Anthony, it will likely work for you too.
