Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
Conservative treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome or other nerve entrapment syndromes can help delay or prevent the need for surgical release. Patients are treated with specific nerve gliding exercises and may also receive iontophoresis using ketoprofen or dexamethasone. Frequently, symptoms may be relieved with custom or prefabricated splints to rest the nerve. Patients are also educated in techniques for performing daily activities that decrease the stress on their nerves.
