Carpal Tunnel Pain
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
"Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition caused by compression of a nerve where it passes through the wrist into the hand and characterized especially by weakness, pain, and disturbances of sensation in the hand and fingers."
At the base of the palm, just above the carpal bones of the wrist, is a "sleeve" or “tunnel” where the tendons and nerves from the arm pass through to the hand and fingers.
The nerve that passes through this narrow tunnel is called the Median Nerve. The tunnel between the forearm and hand is called “The Carpal Tunnel”.
Pinching or compression of the Median nerve, sets into motion a progressively crippling disorder that eventually results in wrist pain, numbness and tingling in the hands.
Statistics: More than 3.8 million visits were made to physicians in office-based practices in 2003 because of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Treating Carpal Tunnel:
Basically, the idea is to reduce the inflammation, tingling, numbness and pain. We recommend natural therapies, if at all possible. Prolotex Carpal Tunnel Gloves are safe and easy to wear, and can be used under your splint or brace, as well as by themselves.
When comparing with treatments like Cortisone shots or surgery, Prolotex™ Far Infrared Carpal Tunnel Gloves offer effective pain relief and healing by targeting the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome, at the molecular level.

Why Do Prolotex™ FIR products help CTS?
The threads in Prolotex™ products are impregnated with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR). These rays can penetrate deep into the tissues of your body and basically increase (stimulate) the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your body dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach afflicted areas. Swelling is reduced, accumulated toxins are released, and the healing process is promoted.
Far Infrared Rays are very helpful in reducing inflammation and relieving your pain. Depending on the severity of your condition and how long you have been experiencing symptoms, it may take a bit longer to feel the benefits of natural FIR therapy.
