Characteristics: The program for carpal tunnel alternates analgesic and vasodilatory up to stimulation frequencies suitable for applications used for treating carpal tunnel syndrome.
Purpose of magnetic therapy application in carpal tunnel
The purpose of magnetic therapy for carpal tunnel is to support the relief or removal of compression and the regeneration of damaged tissues while reducing pain by using its anti-swelling, anti-inflammatory and healing effects.
Using magnetic therapy in carpal tunnel
Carpal tunnel is a syndrome caused by compression of the neurovascular bundle and tendons of the finger flexors in the narrowed channel of the wrist, resulting in numerous neurological and mobility issues, including pain. Carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway on the palm side of your wrist bordered by the wrist joint and the outer firm ligament band. The ligaments and muscles of the forearm that bend fingers and the nervus medianus pass through the carpal tunnel. Increased pressure on the nerve in the carpal tunnel causes painful and degenerative symptoms. Inflammatory changes, changes due to fatigue or hormonal changes (in women) cause an increase of pressure.
Low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy can be successfully used in any stage of the affliction. It leads to a significant reduction in pain and the recovery of mobility. Analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-swelling and healing effects play a key role in the treatment of this disease.
Application of magnetic therapy in carpal tunnel
As a treatment and prevention of carpal tunnel, it is recommended to start application with exposures of the wrist at frequencies of 4-10 Hz; once strong pain recedes, use frequencies of 2-25 Hz until problems disappear and continue for prevention as needed. Ideally, use a solenoid applicator for both hands or the small elliptical applicator for single hand application.
