I have had carpal tunnel in both my wrists for at least 12 years.
I used to work with my hands all the time, from gardening, chain sawing, cross country skiing, and biking to, of course, typing on the computer! But carpal tunnel took me out of the game.
The carpal tunnel has been bad enough that I got what is called "trigger" finger, where my middle finger would freeze in the clench position every evening. It would take me quite some time in morning to get it straight and moving.
I have gone through physical therapy where I learned how to do daily exercises and stretches for my hand to increase the blood flow to my fingers.
The doctor did not recommend any surgery because I did not have any permanent damage. I thought that was great, except that I have continued to experience problem throughout the years.
I usually have two "flare-ups" of carpal tunnel a year, usually a result of doing too much lawn-mowing, gardening or skiing. The flare-ups cause a lot of pain from my wrists all the way to my shoulders. Usually they take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to get over with therapy, resting and icing.
When I heard about aVivoPur's® magnetic wraps, I thought it was worth a try, especially since one of my flare-ups had just started. On the day I ordered the High Power Wrist Wrap I could barely lift and squeeze a cup.
When I received the wrap 2 days later I only wore your product for 24 hours because my pain went away that quickly! Best of all, it stayed away permanently. I am so excited to have a way of helping me control my carpel tunnel besides surgery!
Now when I meet people who have wrist, knee, or other pain I tell them right away about aVivoPur and what the Premier Wrist Wrap did for me. I wish everyone knew how truly incredible magnetic therapy (done right!) can be.
I am a bit more daring these days with my wrists...I have actually started doing push-ups again and look forward to gardening more this summer. The only down side is that I may have to mow once again...oh well!
