Splint: Begin with night time splinting to prevent wrist flexion while sleeping. If this is not successful seek care with a hand surgeon for possible nerve conduction studies and surgical release. Behavioral modification to avoid repetitive overuse of the hands and wrists is also an important part of treatment.
