Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful progressive condition
caused by compression of a key nerve in the wrist. It
occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm
into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist.
Symptoms usually start gradually, with pain, weakness,
or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm.
As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during
the day, and decreased grip strength may make it difficult
to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other
manual tasks. In some cases no direct cause of the syndrome
can be identified. Most likely the disorder is due to
a congenital predisposition - the carpal tunnel is simply
smaller in some people than in others. However, the risk
of developing carpal tunnel syndrome is especially common
in those performing assembly line work.
WEI PATCH TREATMENT
It takes 3 - 6 medium FASTT Patches to treat Carpal Tunnel
Syndrome (CTS). For young patients with recent injuries,
it usually takes 3 patches to heal. If the patient is
older or the injury is caused by overuse, it may take
a couple more patches but the total number of patches
required should not exceed 6. After a treatment with 3
FASTT Patches, there may be 3 different outcomes, depending
on the individual's situation. In the best case, the patient
is completely healed and does not need any further treatment.
Another scenario is that the patient feels significant
pain relief but there is still some pain left. The patient
will need an additional 3 FASTT Patches to complete
the treatment. In the case that the patient does not
feel change after the treatment with 3 FASTT Patches,
it is an indication that the patient may have cartilage
injury or early stage osteoarthritis, and 3-6 WHITEE
Patches are required.
Since both products are helping heal the injury, not
pain killers, a patient may not feel much pain relief
immediately after they put on the 1st patch. It is normal
for the patient to feel the improvement at the end of
the second patch.
