There are a number of ways what the recovery from carpal tunnel syndrome looks like. The way this works depends on the doctor’s advice.

Wearing a brace is the next option. A brace can reduce complaints and reduce the burden on daily activities. This is due to the compression and support that the braces give to the wrist.
Injection at CTS is possible. The doctor can give an injection with an anti-inflammatory. As a result, the complaints become less or disappear completely. Personally, we recommend braces, as we prefer natural recovery rather than medical recovery.
Surgery in CTS is only done if the above methods did not achieve the desired effect.
