How Does It Work?

Injuries & Disease

Injuries have many causes: occupational, recreational sports, age, disease and good old “bad luck”. In time, most people will have had minor to major injuries to the fingers, hands, wrists and forearms in the form of a bruise, cut, fall, break or disease. Most injuries will be addressed with a little TLC (tender loving care); however TLC in millions of fingers, hands, wrists and forearms will not be enough.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (a repetitive motion injury) has more than 2 million people (mostly women) who suffer from this condition.

Arthritis and its various forms, Osteo and Rheumatoid are debilitating conditions that affect “millions” of people and how they function daily in the use of their fingers, hands, wrists.

Diabetes is a major health disease in which hand/grip strength can be affected in 8 to 50 percent of its patients. Restoring certain levels of finger/hand strength, helping to alleviate various levels of pain and weakness can be achieved using Thenar and following the designed strengthening exercise and flexibility program.

Even though degenerative weakness (aging) is not a disease or an injury, the symptoms are comparable to those who have injuries and diseases. Therefore the designed exercises are similar.
