Carpal Tunnel Treatment

How is carpal tunnel syndrome treated?
In this post, we will address general, drug and surgical treatments.
· Treatments for CTS should begin as early as possible and under a doctor’s direction.
· Underlying causes such as diabetes or arthritis should be treated first.
· Initial treatment generally involves resting the affected hand and wrist for at least 2 weeks, avoiding activities that may worsen symptoms, and immobilizing the wrist in a splint to avoid further damage from twisting or bending.
· If there is inflammation, applying cool packs can help reduce swelling.
