Yes: Though you should wait for physicians clearance. Daily activities may be resumed fairly quickly but heavy gripping can take months. Be sure to ask before starting your regimen.

Yes: After the carpal tunnel is released the pressure inside the tunnel and on the nerve is back to a normally functioning hand. Patients can resume all activity as tolerated. I have many patients that are active and involved with weight lifting activity without any issues weeks after an endoscopic release.
