If you’re struggling with Carpal Tunnel pain or numbness, you’re not alone. A 1999 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association discovered that between 3% and 6% of the adult population are affected by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or about 10 and 20 million Americans. Often associated with desk work, Carpal Tunnel is an incredibly debilitating affliction that affects all types of people, from motocross, enduro and road racers to to assembly workers. Thankfully there's the 4ARM STRONG, a device designed to improve overall forearm function that can target several of the root causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Read on to learn more.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by a compression or entrapment of the median nerve in the wrist through the narrow carpal tunnel passageway between your arm and your hand. Commonly caused by repetitive hand motions of manual tasks or consistent improper hand and wrist positions, CTS develops over time resulting in pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand, forearm and elbow.
The trouble with carpal tunnel is both in its prevalence, and its relative lack of effective treatments aside from surgery. Often the first line of treatment is simply to rest. By doing the activities that caused the carpal tunnel less or taking more frequent breaks, you can reduce the symptoms. This can prove difficult if the activities that cause the carpal tunnel are essential tasks for your place of employment, as is the case with countless people afflicted with carpal tunnel syndrome each year including restaurant workers, factory workers, or office workers.
The burden of carpal tunnel syndrome is huge for everyday people and businesses alike. In a study published by the American Journal for Industrial Medicine, a worker with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome experienced an average loss between $45,000 and $89,000 over a six year period. Meanwhile, OSHA estimates that carpal tunnel costs an employer between $35,000 and $65,000 per incident.
Luckily, the 4ARM STRONG Device provides an alternative therapy to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, through carefully applied pressure to the forearm and a stretching routine. These carpal tunnel exercises have proven so effective that the California based insurance company ExcelSure recommends the device for treatment for carpal tunnel in workers compensation cases for several large corporations. In an endorsement of 4ARM STRONG, Solomon D. Williams CEO of ExcelSure said, “when testing your product with our client’s employees, we found that those that have had surgery and those that just had the symptoms without surgery, experienced immediate relief using your product. We find that your product is a great tool to be used to prevent future Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.” Read the full letter here.
The 4ARM STRONG Device is unique in its treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome because it can help solve two of the root cause of CTS, the entrapment or compression of the median nerve either in the carpal tunnel or higher in your arm at the pronator teres. Daily use of the device, which includes executing proper stretches of the fingers, hand, and wrist with the 4ARM STRONG Device applied to the pronator teres, helps create space in the carpal tunnel and can alleviate any long track nerve entrapment throughout the arm.
It can be incredibly difficult to diagnose, with 100% certainty the specific areas causing carpal tunnel symptoms, whether it’s the carpal tunnel, the pronator teras, or a bit of both. Since the 4ARM STRONG aids in relieving both, it can be more effective than other devices like a wrist splint. With added space in the carpal tunnel and relief of any nerve entrapment, pain and numbness from carpal tunnel syndrome will almost immediately disappear.
We’ve seen daily use of the 4ARM STRONG Device change patients with chronic carpal tunnel symptoms lives and free them to return to work. It’s proven so effective that 4ARM STRONG founder, Lee Ramage has been asked to present the 4ARM STRONG Device to corporate workers compensation insurance experts to prove its efficacy. With proper use, the device offers a new, unique alternative to solving carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms. It’s like having access to a personal physical therapist any day at any time.
When the symptoms are properly diagnosed as caused by CTS and not a similar affliction like pronator syndrome or thoracic outlet syndrome, surgery can be an effective treatment for persistent carpal tunnel symptoms. However, in several long-term studies of Carpal Tunnel Surgery found the recurrence rates of CTS symptoms as high as 57% with up to 4% needing a 2nd surgery. Surgery isn’t guaranteed and it flat out won't work if your CTS symptoms are actually caused by another similar entrapment of the median nerve.
This is where the 4ARM STRONG Device comes in. It’s a $100 alternative to expensive and unpredictable surgery. It can address symptoms caused by both carpal tunnel syndrome and long track nerve entrapment in the pronator. Plus, if you're an athlete, the 4ARM STRONG can also help reduce arm pump, increase grip strength and relieve elbow pain.
Only you and your doctor can truly determine the best course of action for treating you carpal tunnel syndrome, but why wouldn’t you want to try a simple self-therapy device with proven results before attempting more invasive solutions?
