Carpal Tunnel Pain Relief

Barbara Brierre - Thursday, November 20, 2014

If you struggle with constant pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, you’ve probably tried a variety of remedies to alleviate the pain in your hands and wrists. The most commonly reported symptoms of CTS include irregular numbing of the fingers and thumbs, as well as moderate to severe pain in the fingers, wrists and forearms.

What is the Carpal Tunnel?

Located near the base of the wrist, the carpal tunnel is adjacent to the carpal bones. It contains flexor tendons, and a median nerve, which provide the ability to move fingers. The flexor tendons extend from the forearm near the elbow joint, attaching to the Distal Interphalangeal, Metaphalangeal, Proximal Interphalangeal bones of your fingers and thumb. Pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome exists because of pressure being placed on the median nerve in your wrist. This problem is treated in a variety of ways.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatments That Can Offer Pain Relief

Carpal tunnel pain relief can be achieved by performing a number of procedures. More common treatments include immobilizing braces combined with regular use of NSAID pain relievers, corticosteroid injections directly into the affected area, cortisone injections, and of course carpal tunnel release surgery. Some less common carpal tunnel treatments include ultrasound therapy, physiotherapy, magnetic therapy, carpal bone mobilization, and splinting. Although there are a variety of options for treating carpal tunnel syndrome, they will not be effective for every person. For those who continue to experience pain associated with this condition, Osmoflex is a great alternative for carpal tunnel pain relief.

How Can Osmoflex Provide Pain Relief for Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel pain relief can be achieved by applying Osmoflex cream directly to the affected areas, whether it is your wrists, fingers or forearms causing you pain. Osmoflex works great for this purpose because of its liposomal delivery method, which is designed to penetrate the layers of the skin to reach the exact source of the pain. Liposomal delivery consists of encapsulating molecules into extremely small carriers, which are made up of phospholipids. These liposomes are capable of traveling through skin layers because of their small size, and are able to provide controlled release of a given chemical.

The ingredients which Osmoflex is comprised of are what make it so successful in providing carpal tunnel pain relief.

Magnesium Sulfate

Magnesium, which is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, provides much needed reduction of swelling in the carpal tunnel, as well as muscle relaxing properties. It also stabilizes the body’s natural level of cortisol production, which is what gives it such great anti-inflammation characteristics.

MSM (Methylsufonylmethane)

MSM is an amino acid which provides great benefits to connective tissues on the body including ligaments, muscles and tendons. It also provides anti-inflammatory benefits to bones and muscles in the human body.
