In brief: Repetitive movement

Carpal tunnel symptoms flair up and calm down after a flare --if no diabetes, edema, obesity, hypothroid--just wear wrist brace avoid flexion, of the wrist, avoid repetitive movements and may be a little steroid on the medican nerve at the tunnel.

In brief: Prevention

Avoiding repeated and forces bending of the wrist.
Splits can help as well as ergonomic chairs and wrist supports to maintain recommended positions to minimize compression of the nerve.
