What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a progressively painful hand and arm condition that occurs due to extensive pressure on the media nerves in the wrists. This can be the result of various causes such as the specific anatomy of your wrist, certain underlying health problems and/or possible patterns of hand use
Why use Sonic Relief?
Ultrasonic sound waves are pulsed at the affected area a million times per second.
- The sound waves penetrate the skin and surface layers and cause tendons and soft tissues to vibrate, producing gentle healing vibrations within the affected area that soothe inflammation and relieve pain.
- Ultrasound waves also cause tendons and tissues to relax and increase blood flow to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation.
- Increased blood flow also delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the tendons and tissue, removes cell waste and aids healing.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is generally thought to be a often the result of a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel, rather than a problem with the nerve itself. Carpal tunnel syndrome has been associated with certain tasks including:
- Repetitive hand motions.
- Awkward hand positions.
- Strong gripping.
- Mechanical stress on the palm.
Prevention and Precautions
but you can minimize stress on your hands and wrists by taking the following precautions:
- Reduce your force and relax your grip. Most people use more force than needed to perform many manual tasks. If your work involves a cash register, for instance, hit the keys softly. For prolonged handwriting, use a big pen with an oversized, soft grip adapter and free-flowing ink. This way you won’t have to grip the pen tightly or press as hard on the paper.
- Take frequent breaks. Give your hands and wrists a break by gently stretching and bending them periodically. Alternate tasks when possible. If you use equipment that vibrates or that requires you to exert a great amount of force, taking breaks is even more important.
- Watch your form. Avoid bending your wrist all the way up or down. A relaxed middle position is best. If you use a keyboard, keep it at elbow height or slightly lower.
- Improve your posture. Incorrect posture can cause your shoulders to roll forward. When your shoulders are in this position, your neck and shoulder muscles are shortened, compressing nerves in your neck. This can affect your wrists, fingers and hands.
- Keep your hands warm. You’re more likely to develop hand pain and stiffness if you work in a cold environment. If you can’t control the temperature at work, put on fingerless gloves that keep your hands and wrists warm.
I would like to express how much I love my Sonic Relief. I used it for my carpal Tunnel syndrome on Both hands. I am in chronic pain to the point that I cannot pick up a piece of paper. My doctor has suggested me the only solution will have to be surgery.
Unfortunately, I hate surgery & there is no guarantee of relief. I found Sonic Relief online and I decide to take a try. I have been using this product for almost a year now and I am virtually pain free. I cannot live without this machine! I was able to go back to work and the things I love. I am so glad to have found this product !
