My massage clients would often remark about how strong my hands were and would ask if had problems with carpal tunnel.
I thought I knew a lot about carpal tunnel syndrome from the discussions about it in massage school. Boy was I wrong.
The stretches I had learned there weren’t working. I’d go home and ice my forearms or alternately dip them in buckets of hot and cold water. There had to be a better way. So I went on quest for a solution. More about that later….
But first let me tell you. I’m 65 years old and my hands feel better than they did when I was a teenager. After doing massage since 1991, I retired from massage practice the beginning of 2015 so I can help more people world-wide.
Now Thousands of people have been helped by the Carpal Tunnel Master program since it was introduces in early 2010.
Do you remember a time, years ago, when the only time you even noticed any sensation in your hands was when you hurt a finger or they got really cold? That’s the way your hands should be.
How are your hands now? Maybe you just have tingling once in a while, OR maybe you get numb fingers when you comb your hair or ride a bicycle OR maybe you mostly get numbness at night maybe causing you to lose sleep. Maybe they hurt. Perhaps you drop things or find it difficlult to use keys.
Maybe you’ve already given up activities you love. Maybe you have to hold dishes in two hands for fear of dropping them. Or maybe you’re scared about the future.
Now imagine, if you don’t do anything to help yourself, how they will be two years from now, five years from now, ten years from now.
What would happen if you couldn’t use your hands for anything? Do you think your problem will just go away? Think again. Or maybe you think you will wait until you need to have surgery. Bad idea. Why? I’ll talk about this later but surgery is risky and has a high failure rate. And even when successful, your carpal tunnel syndrome often comes back years later.
YOU can avoid surgery and get your hands back to normal. Besides that, most of the time it isn’t even carpal tunnel syndrome that is causing your problem. (Even if a nerve conductivity test says it is).
You do not need…. Pills …. Shots …. Braces ….. Gadgets …. Gizmos …. Surgery…. Office Visits.
The common treatment is anti-inflammatory drugs. But knowledgeable doctors now know they not only are not effective, they actually block the body’s natural healing process.
Why Anti-inflammatory Drugs Are Horrible for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome The nine tendons that go through you carpal tunnel of your wrist are each in a hollow tube (called a sheath) can swell up when irritated. This is mostly because the fluid that lubricates them can dry up when repeated movement of the fingers makes the tendon…
