Best Practice in Medicine = Clinically Documented Least Invasive
Are Utilized First
“It is rewarding to see a non-invasive medical device, like the Carpal Solution Treatment, reach such a high level of success with patients. It reduces costs, improves patient outcomes, it is simple to apply and it is effective for 97% of patients. It is gratifying to see that the application work we developed for this remarkable product has worked so well for so many patients with a high compliance rate.”

“The best practice for treatment of a chronic condition like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, that keeps coming back even after surgical procedures, is to use the least invasive clinically documented treatment procedures first – Before going on to more invasive procedures that create irreversible scar tissue, damage to cartilage and permanent loss of grip strength. The Carpal Solution represents the best practice in the first line treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.”
