Wrist Brace – Wrist Splint – Carpal Tunnel Wrist Support
The Carpal Solution is Most Preferred and Effective Wrist Brace
The first line of defense when a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Sufferer visits a typical Healthcare Provider is they are told to get a Wrist Brace or a Wrist Splint or a Carpal Tunnel Wrist Support.
The Carpal Solution is different from the conventional immobilizing hand braces and rigid wrist supports and according to Neurologists, the nerve experts, it is a better first line of Treatment for Carpal Tunnel.
Neurologists say, “Immobilization is the wrong approach for treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Conventional wrist splints sometimes help in the beginning by eliminating movement, however, in the long run these rigid devices cause muscle atrophy, make Carpal Tunnel Symptoms worse and complicate recovery from CTS.”
Why is Carpal Solution Therapy more effective and preferred over conventional wrist braces and rigid splints?
Top 7 Reasons
1- The Carpal Solution decompresses soft tissue in and around the Carpal Tunnel enhancing blood circulation and relieving pressure on the median Nerve. Nutrient rich blood circulation is critical to the body’s natural healing processes. This is why The Carpal Solution works so quickly to relieve symptoms of this chronic repetitive stress disorder. “The Fact that this simple device works in less than a week to eliminate a CTS Sufferer’s Worst Symptoms and puts this chronic syndrome in complete remission within the Six Week Protocol is nothing short of Amazing!” said Dr. Robin after reviewing the progress of a patient who followed the Six Week Program.
Rigid Wrist Splints and Immobilizing Wrist Braces can relieve some pain due caused by movement. While this is the right approach for broken bones that need to be protected from movement while they are reset, it is not the right approach for soft tissue, repetitive stress injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome. These rigid wrist devices generally restrict blood circulation further by compressing the tissue and inhibiting fluid exchange blocking the body’s natural healing process. Also, Splints compress injured soft tissue against hard fiberglass or metal and irritate already inflamed swollen tissue and complicate the healing process.
2- The Carpal Solution enhances Muscle Development, by combining natural healing at night with active use during the day. This sets up an ideal rhythmic therapy for grip strength recovery. The most intense pain is usually relieved within a few nights allowing full muscle activity during the day. Muscle activity also enhances blood circulation and leads to more rapid recovery. Rigid Wrist Splints and conventional carpal tunnel wrist braces inhibit muscle use and lead to muscle atrophy. Muscle atrophy complicates the healing process and leads to other complications and long disciplined rehab periods.
3- The Carpal Solution is comfortable to wear. It is made from breathable hypoallergenic materials and is a soft polymer device designed to apply gentle decompression action consistently every night for eight hours while the hand is completely relaxed. Most users of conventional splints and wrist braces complain that the braces restrict their activity during the day. The rigid splints and hard braces are not breathable and hence create pockets of perspiration which are uncomfortable, they requires constant cleaning and often begin to emit offensive odors. The night splints or carpal tunnel cock-up splints are annoying to sleeping partners and often cause the CTS sufferer to wake up at night with the rigid splints digging into their body.
4- The Carpal Solution is a convenient disposable device. It travels well and stores easily in very little space. There is no cleaning required. No unsightly rigid braces during the day, No odors from used splints.
5- The Carpal Solution puts the CTS sufferer in control of their Carpal Tunnel Symptoms in the privacy of their own home with little interruption to personal life.
6- The Carpal Solution quickly gets the CTS sufferer back to their active life style, with little down time and no steroids shots, or surgery. For most CTS sufferers it relieves symptoms within the first week.
7- The Carpal Solution is cost effective. For less than the cost of health insurance deductibles and co-payments, a CTS sufferer can take control of their symptoms and get back to work and play. Many patients have their physicians prescribe the Carpal Solution as a Hand/Wrist Orthosis and receive reimbursement from their health insurance and workers compensation insurance coverage.
Generally, when a muscle or soft tissue is inflamed, swollen or stiff due to repetitive stress injury, fatigue, over exertion or other injury the space between the skin and muscle is compressed, constricting the flow of lymphatic fluid and inhibiting circulatory action.
The body possesses remarkable healing power when it is able to function naturally.
Normal circulation of the blood in the hand transports nutrient rich blood to cells and carries away toxins and excess fluids from damaged tissue.
However, compressed tissue due to injury restricts blood flow and limits lymphatic fluid exchange in and around the injury blocking the natural healing process.
Rigid wrist splints and hand braces, like the Cock-up Splint, compress this tissue further when straps are cinched up tight. Further compressing this injured tissue usually complicates the natural healing process and often leads to surgery.
This compression also applies pressure to the pain receptors beneath the skin, which in turn communicates, “discomfort signals” to the brain; the person experiences PAIN.
This type of pain is known as myalgia, or muscular pain.
In the case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome the pressure from swelling is compounded dramatically because the pressure from swollen injured tissue affects an extremely vulnerable area which is where the Median Nerve, tendons and blood vessels pass through a restricted channel made up of bones and tough ligaments, we know as the Carpal Tunnel. The Carpal Tunnel becomes a pinch-point. When a nerve is pinched against strong tendons, any movement can result in excruciating pain.

Conventional immobilizing braces, Carpal Tunnel Gloves, Rigid Carpal Tunnel Splints and CTS Wrist Supports are designed to restrict movement of affected muscles and joints and compress tissue. These hand splints and like devices are effective in relieving pain that results from movement. This can often give people a false sense of security because in the long run the immobilizing braces and splints result in muscle atrophy and further injure soft tissue that is regularly compressed with the rigid brace. This can increase pressure on the nerve and actually make Carpal Tunnel Syndrome worse in the long run when continually wearing conventional carpal tunnel braces, hand splints and wrist supports. That is why so many people find their symptoms getting worse even though they are proactively applying a splint. Immobilizing casts, Splints and Rigid hand braces are best applied for sprains and breaks where immobilization allows the broken bone or torn ligaments to heal.
This additional pressure compounds the problem of swollen tissue pressure and further obstructs the flow of body fluids and inhibits the natural healing process. These conventional methods also result in muscle atrophy when applied over the course of several weeks. Muscle atrophy also compounds the fluid exchange problem, because muscle use plays an important role in aiding circulatory action in the body. Muscle loss can take months to recover through rigorous rehabilitation. Muscle rehabilitation is difficult however, when a joint is in pain, so conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome result in a vicious cycle that can be difficult to overcome. The rehab period is extended dramatically because a disciplined cycle of rest and physical therapy is needed. Dr. Morgan recommends to his CTS patients that they stay away from the rigid conventional carpal tunnel wrist braces or carpal tunnel wrist splints.
The Carpal Solution is based on a completely different philosophy that aims to open up the compressed space and allow the circulatory system to transport toxins and excess fluids away from the damaged tissue and bring in nutrient and oxygen rich blood to allow the body’s neuromuscular system to heal itself naturally. Lymphatic fluids are exchanged and dispersed and swollen tissue is allowed to decompress, relieving pressure on the Median Nerve. It is non-invasive and fits in nicely with an active life style. The fact that it can be applied by the CTS sufferer in the privacy of their own home just before retiring to bed is a remarkable breakthrough.
No Rigid Wrist Splints. No Immobilizing Wrist Braces. No Steroid Injections. No Surgery and No downtime. Just all natural relief with the Carpal Solution Therapy.
Many people complain that rigid splints and immobilizing carpal tunnel braces restrict their activity during the day. The rigid splints and hard braces are not breathable and hence create pockets of perspiration which is uncomfortable, requires constant cleaning and often begin to emit offensive odors. The night splints or carpal tunnel cock-up splints are annoying to sleeping partners and often cause the CTS sufferer and their partner to wake up at night as much as their Carpal Tunnel Symptoms do.
While The Carpal Solution is simple in nature, to the trained neuromuscular and muscular skeletal specialist, it is not surprising that The Carpal Solution works so well even on the most chronic cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Rehabilitative taping has emerged as a significant musculoskeletal therapeutic method around the world for the muscular skeletal practitioner.
The aim is to re-educate the soft tissue in and around the neuromuscular system, promoting lymphatic flow, reducing pain, enhancing circulation, preventing further injury, and allowing the body to perform its remarkable self healing mechanisms. The Carpal Solution employs the same medical principles as those used by Keri Walsh’s trainers to apply the effective stretch tape to her injured shoulder in the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
Most people can not orchestrate the time or money to have a muscular skeletal specialist tape them up every night before bed. The Carpal Solution empowers the well informed health consumer to control their symptoms as a professional musculoskeletal specialist would do in the convenience and privacy of one’s own home.
Most of us take our hands and wrist action for granted, but when Carpal Tunnel Syndrome strikes, some of the simplest tasks become painful and intolerable. Actions like brushing one’s teeth, turning the key in the ignition, grabbing the steering wheel, twisting off a lid on a jar, holding a coffee mug, picking up coins, grabbing a tool or even getting a good night’s sleep can become difficult hurdles. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common nerve disorder which affects an estimated 25 million Americans with the incidence growing at a rate of 10 percent per year.
Most people think of bone and joint injuries as accidents that happen suddenly with significant force to break bones and damage soft tissue supporting the joints of the body. However, repetitive stress hand activities are one of the most common ways that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is initiated. They are so subtle that people almost never see them coming until the pain, swelling and numbness begins and at that point the symptoms are chronic, with a difficult cycle that is difficult to treat.
Early detection and treatment is important to checking the progression of the symptoms and yet some of the early symptoms are subtle and can be easily mistaken for other issues. More can be learned about theCarpal Tunnel symptoms clicking here.
Often people look at the Carpal Solution as too good to be true. It is remarkable what can be achieved by simple means when gentle decompression forces are applied consistently to the hand while it is completely relaxed during sleep for eight hours per night over the course of a Six Week Soft Tissue Reshaping Protocol. Musculoskeletal Practitioners are not at all surprised to see the rapid relief of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms experienced when CTS sufferers use Carpal Solution Therapy. It is a non-invasive therapy that works by treating pain right at the source of discomfort rather than taking systemic oral pain medication or relying on high risk invasive surgery. The Carpal Solution is a carpal tunnel wrist brace that simply works!
