In brief: Identify cause
If there is an abnormality, the cause needs to be identified.
It can be tendon/joint problems (arthritis, tendinitis, etc.) or nerve disease (carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.). Many of these conditions are treatable and the tests (blood work, x-rays, nerve conduction tests) are simple and helpful. If no abnormality is found, the problem may be ergonomic.
