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.

In brief: Several options

Common treatments for carpal tunnel are wrist splints, anti inflammatory medications, steroid injections, and surgery, which involves releasing the carpal tunnel.
Surgery can be performed with an open procedure or the minimally invasive endoscopic techniques. Surgery has excellent success rate especially when performed by highly experienced hand surgeons.

In brief: Variety of ways...

For milder cases of carpal tunnel syndrome, splint immobilization at night time with "carpal tunnel braces" can be helpful and can even reverse the problems.
For temporary relief of symptoms, cortisone injections are beneficial albeit temporary. Surgical intervention is needed in cases where conservative treatments have failed.

In brief: Splint

Rest, night splint, vitamin b6 100mg / day, over the counter anti-inflammatory meds and ergonomic changes to work space.
Ultimately if there is no improvement surgery will cure the problem.
