These are some of the most frequently asked questions and answers about a C-Trac device:
What Is a C-TRAC Device?
The C-Trac device is a hand-traction device, designed to stretch the carpal ligament and relieve pressure on the median nerve.
How Does a C-TRAC Device Work?
You place the C-Trac device in your hand. The C-Trac contains an air bladder, which is inflated while you are holding the C-Trac. Three points of pressure are applied along the carpal ligament, to stretch out the ligament, and relieve pressure on the median nerve.
Why Might I Need the C-TRAC Device?
The C-Trac device is an excellent treatment for carpal tunnel, which is a condition caused by the narrowing of the space the carpal ligament goes through. The median nerve is squeezed off at the wrist, causing pain, numbness, and loss of strength in your fingers and hands.
How Fast Can I Expect Results From C-TRAC?
When you wear the device for 5 minutes, 3 times daily, for 4 to 6 weeks, you will see the decrease or elimination of symptoms caused by carpal tunnel.
What Are the Benefits of C-TRAC, Compared To Other Carpal Tunnel Treatments?
- The stretching and traction are controlled by you
- Treatment is completely non-surgical and non-invasive
- It’s effective, with 75% of patients avoiding surgery
- Treatment is safe because approved by the FDA
- The C-Trac device is reusable, so you can use it repeatedly, as needed
