In brief: Relieve pressure

The primary intervention for cts is to relieve pressure on the median nerve in the wrist.
Since we tend to flex our wrists when we sleep, wearing a neutral position wrist splint at night can often make a big difference, especially in conjunction with antiinflammatories. If this fails, nerve block and release surgery are possible options.

Once the symptoms are present all the time, plan to have surgery before permanent injury supervenes
