Prevention & rehab... prevention is the goal, but rehab is a fallback!
"Hand X Band™ would be great for someone with carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow." This was a quote often heard in market research. The problem is, although Hand X Band™ could be a very important part of a carpal tunnel and tennis elbow patients' rehab, the point of Hand X Band™ is prevention. Once injured, you are never the same. If you type, text, drive or any other activity that uses your gripping muscles, you need to balance all of that over-gripping with Hand X Band™!
"Using these bands has not only healed the tendinitis, but they prevent it from returning so I can go as crazy as I want in the gym. And with different resistances, the variety of bands let me periodize the training. Plus, they help to increase grip strength and better forearm development."

"I have found Hand X BandT to be an excellent option for the treatment of lateral epicondylitis. It serves as an alternative way to even out the muscle imbalances in the elbow through eccentric strengthening exercises of the extensors, subsequently promoting blood flow to the area of interest which then stimulates a healing environment for the degenerative process."
Todd Michener, MD, practicing orthopedic surgeon in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
"Repetitive Motion Disorders (RMD) are a family of muscular conditions that result from repeated motions conducted during the course of normal work or daily activities, such as, but not limited to typing, texting, driving, stress balls, mechanics, gardening, etc. RMDs include carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow, bursitis, tendonitis, epicondylitis, De Quervain's tenosynovitis, & trigger finger. RMDs are caused by too many uninterrupted repetitions of an activity or motion. Many of these are caused by repetitive, unopposed gripping. Consult your healthcare provider & consider Hand X Band ™ as part of a comprehensive prevention plan, or if too late, rehabilitation plan that includes rest, stretching & strengthening."
