UPS Driver Treats Carpal Tunnel With Carpal Solution – Cleveland, Ohio
“It was hard to believe that a simple appliance as the “Carpal Solution” could work. Since I was desperate and the appliance had a high success rate, I ordered the “Carpal Solution” for both of my wrists. After the 4th night of wearing the appliance, I was no longer in severe pain.
For those of you who have gone through the pain that I am talking about, you will understand what a blessing it was not to have the intense life interrupting pain. I was regaining my life back. I was able to sleep 5- 6 hours a night instead of less than 2 hours.”
I used the Carpal Solution Therapy for Six Weeks and I would like to share with you some suggestions in regard to your product. However, before I do that, I would just like to take a moment and share my story with you…
it might benefit other sufferers.
Perhaps I should start by sharing with you what I have been through physically. By trade, I was a UPS driver but I have been off work for six years because of a rare muscle disease (Polymyositis). I also have interstitial lung disease and Fibromyalgia. I had been on high doses of prednisone (steroid) for approximately six years. At one point, I was taking 60mg of prednisone a day and other drugs to stay alive. During the past six years, I had an increase in weight (80 lbs.) and a continual battle with water retention due to the prednisone. This made me a prime candidate for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
In August of 2007, I started a protocol of tapering off the prednisone while starting a new drug. The goal was to get completely off of the prednisone. By the end of March of 2008, I was totally off the prednisone. However, it took (for me) another month or so for the prednisone to completely leave my body. By April/May of 2008, I started to experience extreme pain, numbness, and tingling in my hands, writs and forearms. I was diagnosed by my doctor with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in May of 2008.
Looking back over the last six years, I had symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome but did not realize the severity of my problems until I was off of the high doses of prednisone. Prednisone is used for carpal tunnel syndrome to keep inflammation down.
Carpal tunnel was ruining my life. I could not sleep at night even while wearing wrist splints. It took awhile to fall asleep and I would usually wake up within 1 to 2 hours in throbbing pain, numbness and tingling in my hands, wrists and arms. I would have to stand up with my arms hanging down at my side to get the pain to subside. This took several hours of time for the pain to subside (if it did at all). This went on for several months. I was a mess physically, emotionally and mentally. I was not getting sleep which was badly needed for my body to heal and for me to function at all. I even went back on low doses of prednisone to help with the inflammation. The wrist splints and the prednisone helped with the pain, numbness and tingling, but these did not solve my problem. I still was not getting sleep and I could not function during the day.
My physical problems limited what I could do (open jars, carry objects and drive…to name a few). I tried to do hand and wrist exercises but it was too painful and too late for that.
My doctor shared with me that the next step was surgery and he suggested scheduling an EMG. I began to research Carpal Tunnel Syndrome on the internet and I spoke with people who had the surgery. The statistics for recovery after surgery were not that promising. Most of the people that I had spoken with that had surgery for Carpal Tunnel, advised me not to have the surgery done. There were a few people that shared with me that surgery was the best thing they could have done.
Someone had given to me a print out of exercises for Carpal Tunnel from the internet. On the print out was an ad for the “Carpal Solution”. I was desperate for answers that did not include surgery. I went on your website and read all of the information that was available and I watched all of the videos. The video interview with Dr. Robin talking about the symptoms, prevention and treatment of Carpal Tunnel was very helpful. “

“It was hard to believe that a simple appliance as the “Carpal Solution” could work. Since I was desperate and the appliance has a high success rate, I ordered the “Carpal Solution” for both of my wrists.
After the 4th night of wearing the appliance, I was no longer in severe pain. For those of you who have gone through the pain that I am talking about, you will understand what a blessing it was not to have the intense life interrupting pain. I was regaining my life back. I was able to sleep 5- 6 hours a night instead of less than 2 hours.
At the end of two weeks while using the “Carpal Solution”, I felt so much better. I went down to our basement to work on a major organizing and home improvement project that needed to be completed. I did too much work with my hands and I had a set back. The symptoms came back, but the fact that I could even work on the project in the basement given the past several months of intense pain, numbness and tingling demonstrates remarkable progress.
I stayed with the program (watched what I did physically) and once again I was doing well. I followed the 6 week protocol with amazing success. I would say that 80% of my symptoms diminished within the first six weeks. It probably would have been more if I had not rushed the big project coupled with the severity of my CTS condition and the other complicating factors I still deal with.
I am starting another 8 weeks of the Carpal Solution using the “Carpal Solution Plus” for persistent CTS symptoms, which includes a natural topical anti-inflammatory combined with the Carpal Solution therapeutic stretch tape. I am confident this will put the condition in complete remission.
I am so glad that I found out about your product and took a chance on ordering it. It really works!
It feels so good to get my life back!

PS. I have several suggestions for your product…
• Perhaps give a heads up to those with severe carpal tunnel that a second six week therapy may be necessary with the Carpal Solution Plus.
• Shave back of hand(s) & wrist(s) before using – the tape and appliance were pulling my hairs and made for an uncomfortable fit
• Relax hand when applying small tape between thumb and index finger for a better fit
• Pre-cut tape before applying – I found that it was easier to cut the tape with scissors before applying than tearing it.
• Wash hand(s) and wrist(s) before putting appliance on
• Make it more affordable – for those of us on disability
• Include stretching exercises for the shoulders, neck, arms and upper back – I realize that an individual should not do stretching exercises for the wrist while it is inflamed. However, I have been doing stretching exercises for my arm, neck, shoulders and upper back with great success for the Carpal Tunnel.
