Dr. Terry Zachary developer of the Handmaster Plus. One of the main reasons we developed the product was to combat and prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. So today, we are going to talk about carpal tunnel syndrome The first thing is what is it and very simply, it is easy to look up on the internet. But I will tell you that the carpal tunnel syndrome is. the carpal tunnel, excuse me, is just distal to your wrist. So if you follow it up a little bit, if you were to put the thumb.
And the finger together where the crease, where the cleavage is, is basically the carpal tunnel. It’s now. it is made of from the bones of the wrist form its base and the top of it is formed by a legum that comes across. Okay So that is the carpal tunnel itself. The space within that is the carpal tunnel. It is about as big as the thick index finger. Okay. Carpal tunnel syndrome very simply then is any situation or condition that would compromise the space of the carpal tunnel.
Through the carpal tunnel, there is nine 9 flexor tendons and also the median nerve. So anytime the space of the carpal tunnel is compromised, that is when they can put pressure on the median nerve and that is what carpal tunnel syndrome is. Okay The main situation is that when we see compromising the tunnel itself. It is when the tunnel itself collapses. With most common things you see is anybody uses their hands especially in small motions surgeons are very common dental office is very common computer is very common.
working a mouse very very common bartenders are very common beauticians anything that work with crafts but it can be sports music as well, is very very common to see it. So what we see is anytime we are flexing the muscles of the hand and that is part of our daily routine, you can just see the carpal tunnel collapses itself. So in those situations, we want to oppose that by strengthening the muscles that open the hand. And that is what the Handmaster Plus exercise does. The second situation you see where carpal tunnel is common is when there is poor blood.
Flow and the primary example is in pregnant women. So the other. What we want to contribute to try to combat or prevent carpal tunnel syndrome is make sure that we are taking the hands through its full range of motion, which I will show you that right now. So this is the Handmaster Plus very easy to get a hold of all this information at the end of this tutorial. What we have the people do is to put it on their thumbs and fingers just like this to keep the wrist straight and you are going to just have one exercise.
squeeze against the hand, open and spread against the cord. So it is just one continuous exercise. When I squeeze here, I strengthen the nine 9 muscles that close the hand. When I open and spread, I strengthen the nine 9 muscles that open and spread the hand. These muscles are super important when it comes to carpal tunnel syndrome because as you can see, when I strengthen these muscles, that carpal tunnel is nice and wide. Okay So I am going to oppose the things that I have been doing during the day by strengthening.
The extensor tendons. So I just have the person anybody that is in the job where it is red flag or a potential for a carpal tunnel syndrome, which I would say computer work, production line, clerks, checkout counter, dental offices, surgeons, hairdressers, bartenders any work where the carpal tunnels, where regular flexing of the finger of the hands is common, that is using carpal tunnel. So what we do and it is where you. Well, to train those people to prepare them for their activities so they can do it efficiently but also not working to injury it is where.
You just help them do this continuous exercise. It only takes a couple of minutes a day and you are going to see that we start to train the muscles that open the hand. We also, as we do this because we take the hand through its full natural range of motion, we are going to stimulate maximum blood flow, and that is another thing. You can want blood flow through that carpal tunnel and that is going to make sure that we. the pressure within that tunnel does not maximize and cause the pressure on that medial nerve.
So the Handmaster Plus is available through our website doczac, doczac it is available through our distributors or brand partners as well. Or you can also buy it online. I do recommend it highly for anybody that works in a profession like we have talked about whether it is a lot of repetitive flexion or repetitive gripping. If you have an office that has a lot of repetitive gripping, for example a dentist office, you can contact us. We are very good about supplying people with product for a little less price if you.
