The vast majority of carpal tunnel braces on the market immobilize the wrist and hands to prevent or restrict movement. Medical experts and researchers are at odds about whether these stiff braces do harm or good. However, the balance of evidence suggests that stiff splints will reduce pain due to movement, but are ineffective in providing any therapeutic relief to resolve chronic inflammation, an underlying cause of CTS.
The consensus is that these rigid braces and splints in fact worsen the painful numb symptoms of the hand and wrist in the long run. Rigid hand braces and wrist splints result in muscle atrophy over time which can greatly complicate recovery from repetitive strain injury. Once the muscle has atrophied, you have to rebuild the muscle without injuring the tissue once again. This can be a tricky maneuver, that requires a lot of physical therapy and icing.
Also, conventional rigid hand orthotic devices actually compress and further compact and irritate already injured compacted tissue that needs to be gently decompressed instead of compressed further.

Complications from Splinting, Wearing Wrist Splints and Application of Carpal Tunnel Braces
There are a host of potential complications that can result from the use of conventional Carpal Tunnel Braces and Wrist Splints that you find in a pharmacy or a medical supply shop. Wearing these devices immobilize the hand and wrist and can reduce symptoms in the first couple of weeks, but when used for more than a few weeks the potential complications include:
- Muscle Atrophy,
- Joint Stiffness,
- Loss of Muscle Flexibility,
- Chronic Pain from the Wrist Splint and
- more severe complications like Infection and
- complex regional pain syndrome.
This is why the Doctors of First Hand Medical recommend staying away from splinting with wrist splints or bracing with rigid braces for a chronic syndrome like Carpal Tunnel. The early relief of some carpal tunnel pain due to movement creates a false expectation of long-term improvement.
Using a flexible Stretch Taping System like the Carpal Solution Home Treatment Kit avoids all the above complications and jump-starts your body’s natural healing. The Flexible Carpal Solution Carpal Tunnel Brace restores blood circulation and restores flexibility to the injured soft tissue allowing your body to heal naturally.
