Hand occupational therapy can teach you exercises to decrease pain and improve your function. Our doctors can give you a corticosteroid injection to the wrist which may help with relieving the symptoms temporarily. Sometimes, electromyography and a nerve conduction test are performed to determine the extent of nerve injury. If the symptoms are persisting despite conservative treatments or if there is muscle wasting in the hands or severe findings on the nerve test, you may be referred to an orthopaedic surgeon for release of the carpal tunnel.
