In brief: It helps
A carpal tunnel splint is a conservative treatment for carpal tunnel aimed at decreasing the pressure and constriction on the median nerve by keeping your wrist in a neutral position while you sleep.
It typically won't cure the problem but will alleviate the symptoms.

In brief: Sometimes
When the numbness and tingling is mild i recommend splinting.
There are patients that get complete relief of their symptoms with this simple treatment. If the symptoms get worse you can consider injections of cortisone and possibly a procedure called a carpal tunnel release.

In brief: In some cases.
Splinting, especially at night, is a risk-free and potentially effective treatment for early carpal tunnel syndrome.
Other treatments include anti-inflammatory medication, steroid or cortisone injections. And surgery.
