Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a chronic condition caused by pressure placed on the median nerve, which is a nerve that runs through a hollow tunnel along the wrist and into the hand. This nerve is crucial to feeling and motion in the hand and wrist, and repeated and excessive pressure and/or repetitive motions can inflame the nerve. In turn, tingling and/or numbness, as well as pain and weakness, may be experienced in the wrist, hand, and fingers.
While individuals who spend a lot of time at computers may be prone to carpal tunnel, people who work in other types of occupations and/or engage in various types of sports or other leisure activities that require repetitive motions may find themselves dealing with this painful condition.
Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome includes resting the hands and wrists, as well as various therapies, medications, and even surgery. But consider a much simpler approach to alleviating the pain and weakness caused by CTS: magnetic therapy. Some people have found that the healing properties of magnets can help with carpal tunnel pain. Any one of our magnetic support wraps will not only put magnets close to the source of your pain, but provide physical support and compression for your hand and wrist. Choose from thin wraps that support just your wrist, or a more comprehensive wrap that also supports the hand and your wrist up to your forearm.
