Wearing a splint at night
Avoid sleeping on your wrists and place warm and cold compresses on the affected area. If nighttime splinting doesn’t help, you may need to wear the splint during the day, too.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, can help.
Including specialized keyboards, computer mouse, cushioned mouse pads. You may also consider occupational therapy to help with proper positioning of frequently used items.
Carpal tunnel release surgery
Which “releases” the ligament that is pressing on the nerve. The success of the surgery depends on how long the nerve has been compressed and the severity of the compression.
