In brief: Rest

carpal tunnel is overgrowth of band around tunnel for median nerve , rest ius best treatment but half cocked Velcro wrist splints especially at night along with pain meds like Excedrin, motrin , aleve (naproxen) good , repetitive wristflexion /work causes this most often though not sure in many cases if getting worse steroid injection or surgery in order but still can come back if repetitive use again builds

There are several at home programs which can reduce or eliminate your symptoms.
Some are inexpensive, and some very expensive. If you are willing to be an active participant in your treatment, then I can help. If interested, please make an appointment for a Virtual Consultation with me.
