Splints are commonly recommended forms of treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and are mainly worn at night. These splints help to keep your wrists straightened so that pressure can be relieved from the median nerve. You will be given either working splints for the daytime or resting splints for the nighttime, or both should your doctor see fit.
Sometimes, your doctor will recommend that you see a physiotherapist to help you get fitted for your splints if you need them to be custom-made. You will be instructed on how to wear your splints and how long you should be wearing them for.
