I started with wearing the brace on my right hand and it kinda helped. After wearing braces for a bit I had a day where the pain was significant and decided to try massage to see if it would help. The massage worked and afterwords I felt relatively pain and discomfort free. I thought I had found a great way to deal with this carpel tunnel problem. The massage helped loosen the muscles in the hand and push the fluids that had built up in the area. Sad to say the pains were back the next day and the braces were back on to stay.
I have now tried both and find that the braces are probably the best avenue for me in regards to dealing with this problem at the moment. They do not take away all the pain or tingling that I have experienced with the carpel tunnel, but it has helped to decreased them. Carpel tunnel is a strange feeling to have and to explain to someone who has not experienced it themselves.
