Answer By Doctors at First Hand Medical:
Thanks for the question. There are several important facts to keep in mind. One Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is not a disease the can be cured per se. A syndrome is a collection of symptoms that occur together and characterize an abnormal condition. So, in the case of CTS, it is a collection of symptoms that are caused by pressure on the Median Nerve in the anatomical section of the hand known as the Carpal Tunnel.
Can this Syndrome be cured?
The short answer is no. The collection of symptoms that are known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome will likely come back no matter how you treat it. CTS comes back even after invasive Carpal Tunnel Surgery for over 85% of people within 1 to 8 years.
So, the important question is:
“What is the best method to treat this Carpal Tunnel Condition to keep it in remission for the longest time with the least downtime, risks, and potential complications to the patient?”
There is a range of Treatment options that are often recommended by the medical community. The most widely recommended is Carpal Tunnel Surgery.
Carpal Tunnel Surgery should be considered a last resort for treatment of Carpal Tunnel because of the risks, downtime and potential complications. There are some important facts to keep in mind with surgery:
1- Medical text books suggest that Carpal Tunnel Surgery should not be performed more than twice in a life time for each hand due to scar tissue formation.
2- Success rates for surgery are about 50 to 60% for 1st time procedures.
3- Second Carpal Tunnel Surgical Procedures have a success rate of 35 to 45% due to the proliferation of scar tissue.
4- Downtime for Surgery can range from 2 months up to one year after Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery.
5- Surgery of any kind has a host of potential complications and risks.

6- Most people are surprised to learn that Carpal Tunnel Surgery is not a Permanent Fix to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
So, your instincts to look for an alternative natural treatment or cure for Carpal Tunnel, makes a lot of sense.
The good news is Doctors have developed a natural treatment for Carpal Tunnel that you can do at home with no downtime, no restrictive wrist splints and no injections. The treatment is called the Carpal Solution Therapy.
It involves 224 hours of gentle targeted stretching to jump start your body’s natural healing process again.
Sounds intense right?
The truth is, it is really easy. You simply place the Carpal Solution Stretch Taping System on your hands before going to bed each night for two weeks and every other night for four weeks.
The Carpal Solution Devices stretch your hand gently in three key places for 6 – 8 hours while you sleep.
This natural stretching restores flexibility to the injured soft tissue, it also restores normal blood circulation to the injured tissue. Lymphatic fluid is dispersed eliminating any swelling or micro-swelling.
Your body’s natural healing process takes over once you remove the obstacles to the healing process.
Injured soft tissue loses its flexibility and contracts pinching the area around the Carpal Tunnel which houses the Median Nerve. Also, swelling or lymphatic fluid puts pressure on the Median Nerve in the Carpal Tunnel and also blocks circulation.
This Syndrome is cyclical. Once it gets started it is hard to break out of the cycle of symptoms of hand pain and hand numbness without some natural outside help. The Natural Stretching Action provided by the Carpal Solution is the perfect answer for most people to “Cure Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Naturally”.
Like Carpal Tunnel Surgery, CTS will come back even after treatment with the Carpal Solution, but it is simple and inexpensive to treat when it does come back and it is reimbursed by health insurance.
For most people CTS will go into remission and the Carpal Tunnel Symptoms will go away for 2 – 7 years.
When it does come back you simply apply another Six Week Therapy Pac and you are good for another 2 – 7 years.
The Carpal Solution is the natural answer for 97% of people with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Surgery is reserved, with its risks for the other 3% of people for whom the Carpal Solution does not work.
