Other Treatments

If Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by a medical problem your doctor will probably first treat that problem.

Your doctor may ask you to rest your wrist or change how you use your hand. They may also ask you to wear a splint on your wrist. The splint keeps your wrist from moving but lets your hand do most of what it normally does. A splint can help ease the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, especially at night.

Putting ice on your wrist, massaging the area and doing stretching exercises may help too.

Causes of CTS

Repeating the same hand movements over and over can lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It’s most common in people whose jobs require pinching or gripping with the wrist held bent. People at risk include people who use computers, carpenters, grocery checkers, assembly-line workers, meat packers, musicians and mechanics. 

CTS may also be caused by an injury to the wrist such as a fracture, or it may be caused by a disease such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or thyroid disease. Carpal tunnel syndrome is also common during the last few months of pregnancy.
