Why use The Helping Hand
Stretch-assager? (US Patent 6010431)
Have you had any of these problems in you hand,
wrist or arm? Burning, Tingling, Pain, Fatigue, Weakness of Grip,
Loss of Dexterity, Stiffness, Soreness, Cramping, Numbness, Coldness, Swelling,
Throbbing, Atrophy of the Hand. In advancing cases, you may feel pain or
cramping around the base of the thumb or your thumb may become nonfunctional.
Symptoms may strike long after activity has ended, often during periods of rest.
Don't ignore them!
Most victims are surprised by the swiftness with which a few mild
occurrences can degrade into a long-term problem. Many find that the symptoms
take less and less effort to produce then just never go away. They are usually
the consequence of a Repetitive Strain Injury
such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
has risks and is often not a cure. Many people will never overcome it once it
here for more prevention tips.
Developed by CTS sufferers, this easy-to-use, inexpensive
exerciser will probably amaze you . The Stretch-assager integrates a
combination of beneficial actions into one fast, easy and effective exercise
that can relieve and/or prevent symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in just
minutes a week. The Stretch-assager was the first product available to
the public designed to reduce pressure on the median nerve by helping to enlarge
the carpal tunnel and increase blood flow to carry away toxins. Can be used with
either hand or both hands simultaneously. No need to ever purchase more than
one. No complicated or hard-to-use contraptions.

Stretch-assager without risking a penny. $24.88US plus S&H. Shipped almost

What does The Stretch-assager
Helps relieve pressure on the Median Nerve which
causes the classic symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome such as pain,
burning, tingling, numbness, etc.
Relaxes muscles to restore blood flow through the
wrist, hands and arms. Blood does not travel through tensed muscle
fibers and continual tensing (as with prolonged computer use) causes anaerobic
by-products, such as lactic acid, to build up. These by-products cause cell
damage and swelling which pressures the median nerve and leads to CTS.
Stretching increases blood flow which carries away the by-products much faster
than rest alone. Leaves your hands feeling refreshed.
Helps restore strength and dexterity.
Often this is associated with the Thenar Muscles at the base of the thumb which
become dysfunctional as they are deprived of stimulation from the Median Nerve.
As the pressure on the nerve is reduced, the nerve can resume its normal
interaction with this muscle and others as well.
Helps prevent or relieve nighttime symptoms
when used before bedtime.
Useful as a preventative measure.
Occasional use can help stop, prevent or contain CTS symptoms before they
spiral out of control.
Fast Results. For most, relief can often
be achieved with only a minute or two of use a day. Minor symptoms may be
relieved in just a few days. More advanced symptoms usually take longer. Has
helped many even reduce arthritis pain.
Easy to use and works with either hand or both
simultaneously. Most CTS sufferers eventually have symptoms in both
hands. No need to purchase one for each hand. No straps, wires or complicated
contraptions to make use difficult or uncomfortable.
How does it work?
The Stretch-assager is based on simple but effective
principles. As shown, the Carpal Tunnel (pink area) is created by
carpal bones (white) and the tough but elastic Transverse Carpal Ligament
(blue). Because of these structures, the Carpal Tunnel does not automatically
expand to accommodate swelling, thickening or scarring of the tendons (red),
their sheaths or surrounding tissues from overuse. This causes pressure (also
called compression) to build on the Median Nerve (yellow) which also runs
through the Carpal Tunnel. This pressure then causes the nerve to dysfunction
bringing on the classic symptoms of CTS and, eventually, permanent damage if not
relieved. In a Carpal Tunnel Release Operation, it is the Transverse Carpal
Ligament that is severed to try and halt Median Nerve compression.
Unfortunately, this operation is often not performed until the symptoms have
become unbearable and permanent damage may have occurred. Carpal Tunnel Release
Operations have had very mixed results, can cause trauma of its own and does not
repair permanently damaged nerves.
Stretch-assager is specially designed with laminated, dual compression foam
rubber. As you use the Stretch-assager, the sides of your palm are gently drawn
in the direction of the arrows in a massage-like fashion. Since the
Transverse Carpal Ligament resides under the base of the palm, it stretches as
well. This assists in actually enlarging the Carpal Tunnel, which then can
better accommodate any swelling, thickening or scarring thus decreasing the
pressure on the nerve. As the pressure decreases, the pain, tingling, burning,
etc. is alleviated while grip strength and dexterity return. The threat of
permanent damage is diminished as well.
addition, the muscles and tendons of your hand and forearm are also gently
stretched. Stretching the muscles decreases muscle tension which increases blood
flow. Tensed muscle fibers inhibit blood flow. This aids in
eliminating the build up of anaerobic by-products such as lactic acid that can
cause cell damage. In addition, stretching the tendons makes them thinner, thus
further reducing pressure inside the Carpal Tunnel and on the Median Nerve.
The combination of these simultaneous
actions can help stop or reverse
cycle of cell degeneration while relieving symptoms associated with Carpal
Tunnel Syndrome. Also, your hands are better conditioned for
activities that can cause disorders. Your hands will feel relieved, refreshed,
relaxed and restored, often within seconds after use. The Stretch-assager may be
used in conjunction with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicines as well.

effect amazing. Just in case, we offer a "no risk"
