The Best Supports to Help Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Tuesday, 24 April 2012  |  Paul

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition resulting in numbness and pain in the hands and fingers. The condition is more common in women than men and it is caused by pressure on a nerve in the wrist. It is thought that around 1 in 1000 people develop carpal tunnel syndrome each year. We will look at the main causes and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and the best carpal tunnel wrist splints and supports that are available.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve, this is the nerve which provides feeling to parts of the hand. People suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome will complain of pain, numbness, burning sensations or tingling in their hand and fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome is generally found in people who perform repetitive movements with their wrist or hand. Actions such as typing on a keyboard, writing, driving and some sports can caused carpal tunnel syndrome.

A popular wrist splint for carpal tunnel syndrome is the Donjoy Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Wrist Support has been designed for improved wrist stabilisation supported by an aluminium stay. This carpal tunnel support is ideal for immobilisation of the wrist. The Mueller Carpal Tunnel Wrist Stabiliser has been designed to relieve the pain and swelling associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. Whilst helping to relive carpal tunnel pain this wrist stabiliser will also be suitable to support weak or injured wrists. The Mueller Carpal Tunnel Wrist Stabiliser is a lightweight and comfortable wrist brace that will allow full movement of the thumb and fingers.

If you are recovering from carpal tunnel syndrome surgery the the Silipos Carpal Tunnel Recovery Gel Sleeve helps to manage scars and sensitive areas of the skin. The Silipos Carpal Tunnel Recovery Gel Sleeve is made from a mineral oil that gradually dissipates onto the skin to help moisturise and flatten the appearance of scars. The anatomically designed gel pad is moulded onto an elastic sleeve that contours to the shape of the palm. By wearing the carpal tunnel sleeve, shock, impact and vibration to the wrist is reduced. If you have a particularly sensitive wrist the Silipos Carpal Tunnel Recovery Sleeve helps to reduce the discomfort caused by hypersensitivity.
