You cannot: There are things like ergonomic work stations and wrist splints at night. Carpal tunnel syndrome is most common in women over fifty, overweight, diabetic or with thyroid or kidney disease. If you do not have these problems than your chance of getting cts is low.

Carpal tunnel release can be done open or endoscopic. A hand surgeon can help. http://www.handctr.com/carpal-tunnel-syndrome-q-a.html.
