What should I do if hand discomfort increases during the first few nights of Carpal Solution Therapy?
Getting Through the Soft Tissue Transition Period
Dr. Morgan recommends that if discomfort increases during the first two weeks of therapy that you continue with the six week protocol through this Soft Tissue Transition Period. Many patients have found that they can control short term discomfort using safe, over-the-counter, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, oral pain medication (commonly referred to in medicine as Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs or NSAID) . NSAID’s that are generally considered safe and most effective by the medical community include ibuprofen and naproxen (Some of the common brand names are: Advil, Motrin, Aleve, etc.).
NSAIDs that should be avoided include COX-2 inhibitors such as VIOX or Celebrex which have recently have been associated with serious heart and circulatory side effects.
People more comfortable with natural pain relievers may want to try: Curcumin (which is derive from a plant in southern India that is thought to be rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds) which some claim has been useful as a Prednisone alternative, or Bromolain which is derived from the pineapple and has anti-inflammatory properties associated with it.
Oral pain medication can minimize the discomfort while going through the Soft Tissue Transition Period. This Soft Tissue Transition Period can take less than one night or up to four weeks depending on the person and their condition. Each Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Sufferer tends to have his or her own unique conditions associated with the syndrome depending on the various combinations of contributing factors. There are over a dozen common contributing factors to CTS. Most people get through the Transition in one to five nights.
CTS sufferers should be careful to follow the directions on the oral pain medication container or seek the advice of their physician for guidance on taking pain medication at levels above that prescribed on the label of the medication. Oral pain medication is usually intended to control short term bouts of pain, such as that which may be encountered during the Soft Tissue Transition Period. In fact the safe oral NSAIDs are ideal for helping people get through any possible discomfort while following the Carpal Solution Six Week Protocol designed by Dr. Morgan. CTS sufferers should not use oral pain medication for periods longer than directed on the label unless they are guided by the supervision of a licensed physician.
Side effects from long term use or exceeding dosage recommendations with oral pain medication include gastrointestinal complications and in the case of COX-2 inhibitors heart complications. It is essential that you always used oral pain medications as directed on the label or by your physician.
