Do you ever feel pain, tingling, or numbness in your hands? If so, you might be experiencing the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In order to address the severe pain and discomfort associated with this condition, Zensah has designed a Compression Wrist Sleeve to provide targeted wrist support and relief to the wrist area to help relieve carpal tunnel pain.
What is carpal tunnel syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a hand and arm condition resulting from the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. The median nerve runs from the forearm to the hand through the carpal tunnel, a narrow space in the palm at the wrist that is formed by supportive bones and ligaments. The median nerve controls movement and feeling in the palm side of the thumb and the first three fingers. When the ligament on the “roof” of the carpal tunnel swells, increased pressure is placed on the median nerve. This additional pressure on the median nerve leads to the development of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has a variety of symptoms that range in severity and affect each person differently. Normally, the onset of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is gradual, and symptoms become more intense over time. Many people first notice their symptoms at night as a result of sleeping with flexed wrists. It is very common for people to first experience a “pins and needles” sensation that makes you want to shake out your hands.
Other common symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include burning, itching, or numbness in the palm of the hand and thumb, index, and middle fingers. Fibers of the median nerve originate from the spinal cord in the neck, and travel through the shoulder and elbow areas. For this reason, some people diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome experience shoulder and elbow pain. If it goes untreated, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can lead to permanent nerve and muscle damage.
How can the Zensah Wrist Sleeve help relieve wrist pain?
With the use of compression technology, Zensah’s Compression Wrist Sleeve works to alleviate the wrist pain and discomfort caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The compression in the wrist sleeve improves blood flow to keep the wrist’s nerves and tendons working properly. Unlike other hard, bulky braces, the Compression Wrist Sleeve is lightweight and made with super-soft Zensah fabric to provide comfort and a full range of motion.
Need extra compression? Zensah’s got you covered. Our Advance+ Compression Technology incorporates a cuff that can be folded over on the wrist sleeve for additional support. Since it’s made with anti-odor, moisture wicking fabric, the wrist sleeve will remain lightweight and odor-free during any workout or training session.
