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 antiinflammatoriess. If this fails, nerve block and release surgery are possible options.
