Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Pregnancy
Finger numbness and wrist pain have long been common problems associated with pregnancy. In fact, medical experts estimate that as many as 28% of pregnant women get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in the third trimester. Though the cause of this painful and wholly uncomfortable condition is unknown, the problem often subsides after delivery of the baby.
Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome during pregnancy can be a difficult medical problem. Health care providers are increasingly reluctant to treat the pain with drugs in order not to compromise the safety of the fetus. Alternatively, surgery is not a viable solution unless the pain becomes unbearable. IMAK's Pil-O-Splint® and Smart Glove® are excellent solutions for pregnancy-induced Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
