Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Collagen
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an extremely painful and very common ailment in which a nerve is compressed in your carpal tunnel (a group of tendons located in the base of your palm). The nerve being pinched causes pain, swelling, tingling, and even numbness that can inhibit your ability to live a normal life as symptoms are aggravated by repetitive motions such as typing, texting, and even driving. Since these same repetitive motions are often what cause the syndrome in the first place, it makes sense that CTS is becoming more prevalent in recent years. You can’t avoid repetitive motions altogether so how can you prevent CTS or relieve the symptoms? Collagen is one supplement that might be able to help.
The best thing you can do for medical conditions is always to speak to a medical professional before taking any action yourself. However, there are some things you can try at home that might help. Traditional Tonic Nourishing Collagen is a safe, non-GMO hydrolyzed collagen supplement you can consume twice a day that helps support your body’s natural processes. Collagen is essential to your body’s joint protection and the amino acids it contains are used to create cartilage and connective tissues which are key issues when it comes to CTS. In addition, the amino acids in Traditional Tonic support gut health which can reduce inflammation in the gut. Although this sounds unrelated, a healthy gut can actually reduce inflammation throughout the body.
With these benefits combined, collagen can be a great way to help your body avoid CTS and even help heal. If your joints and tendons are well-supported and your gut is healthy enough to avoid unnecessary inflammation, repetitive motions such as texting and typing may be easier for your body to contend with.
