Brace, NSAIds: Many patients with carpal tunnel find relief from wearing a brace that helps immobilize the wrist. Nsaids can also lessen the inflammation and pain. Furthermore, cortisone injections can help the symptoms. Sometimes medicines like Neurontin and Lyrica (pregabalin) can be used. Finally, surgery is always a possibity if conservative measures fail. www.oano.com.
