Why is CarpalAID different from other supposed treatments?
CarpalAID is quite different from any other devices currently available in the marketplace and is the only product that works directly on carpal tunnel syndrome.
Braces, gloves and splints are just for wrapping or immobilizing the hand and has nothing to do with relieving the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome.
NSAIDs may help to temporarily relieve pain because they work to reduce swelling but long-term use of NSAIDs because of the side effects is not recommended.
Steroid injections generally work to relieve the pain but the result may not be immediate and the injection will need to be repeated as often as safe and practicable or as recommended by your medical practitioner.

How many days will I have to wear it before I feel relief?
First of all, you can wear it any time you feel pain, in the first 10 to 20 minutes you should feel the difference. Complete relief depends on the seriousness of your carpal tunnel syndrome.
