The Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket can help those who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome by reducing the inflammation that causes painful symptoms. Natural carpal tunnel treatment can be effective for anyone that is struggling to beat this condition. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when pressure on the median nerve causes pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in your hand and arm.
The median nerve is one of the major nerves of the forearm and hand. In carpal tunnel syndrome, it gets compressed or squeezed when it travels through the narrow passageway in the wrist called the carpal tunnel. If left untreated, the symptoms can get worse and lead to permanent nerve damage.
There are numerous risk factors for carpal tunnel syndrome, including repetitive motion, a previous fracture or dislocation, certain medical conditions like diabetes, thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammation as well as pregnancy. Any inflammation of the tissue in the narrow, rigid carpal tunnel region can compress the median nerve.
While many cases of carpal tunnel syndrome are work-related, other causes include non-work-related injury or trauma, overactive pituitary gland, underactive thyroid gland, Rheumatoid arthritis, and fluid retention.
