After a physical examination and analysis of your clinical history, x-rays, electromyography, and nerve conduction studies will be requested to confirm the diagnosis and to be able to choose the appropriate treatment, which should reduce numbness and tingling, restoring movement. If not, immobilization of the wrist with a temporary sleep splint may be used, in addition to taking painkillers and anti-inflammatories.
If the treatment does not work and the symptoms worsen, the only option is surgery to relieve pressure on the median nerve by cutting the ligament that is pressing on it.
