In brief: Splints, surgery

The most common treatments for cts are wrist splints that typically are worn at night , anti inflammatory medications, some advocate steroid injections, and if the symptoms persist, a carpal tunnel release surgery.
Surgery typically has a very good success rate.

Much depends upon the degree or severity and duration of the carpal tunnel. More mild earlier cases respond to conservative care while more severe , longer duration cases may only be amenable to surgery.

Antiinflammatory medication, splints to start. Injections in the wrist. Nerve studies and at times surgery. Carpal tunnel release can be done open or endoscopic. A hand surgeon can help. ., .

In brief: No

There are many options to treat carpel tunnel, splint especially at night, anti -inflammation medication, steroid injection, avoid certain movements, if this approach failed surgery could be done.
