The actual cause of Carpal tunnel syndrome is unknown in most people. The syndrome is more common in women and it becomes more common as we grow older and seems to affect people with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, thyroid conditions and rheumatoid arthritis more frequently. Symptoms can often be relieved without surgery. Commonly treatment for Carpal tunnel syndrome begins with a brace or splint worn at night to keep the wrist in a natural position, splints can also be worn during activities that aggravate symptoms, also medications such as Tylenol or Advil can help decrease pain.
