The Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket can help those who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome by reducing the inflammation that causes painful symptoms.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when pressure on the median nerve causes pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in your hand and arm.
The median nerve is one of the major nerves of the forearm and hand. In carpal tunnel syndrome, it gets compressed or squeezed when it travels through the narrow passageway in the wrist called the carpal tunnel.
If left untreated, the symptoms can get worse and lead to permanent nerve damage.
There are numerous risk factors for carpal tunnel syndrome including repetitive motion, a previous fracture or dislocation, certain medical conditions like diabetes, and inflammation.
Any inflammation of the tissue in the narrow, rigid carpal tunnel region can compress the median nerve.
If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, wrapping your wrist with the Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket for just 30 minutes a day can help reduce this inflammation and reduce or eliminate the painful symptoms.
Patented ceramics in the blanket absorb the body’s ambient heat and convert that heat into far infrared energy in the form of photons. Those photons are then redirected back to the body where they cause water clusters in plasma to vibrate and break apart. Reducing the cluster size makes blood circulation more efficient, and improved circulation has a host of benefits, including a reduction in inflammation and pain.
