Many factors influence the development of CTS; therefore, nonoperative treatment should not be limited to only one intervention. Nonoperative treatment is most effective in the early stages, prior to irreparable damage to the nerve. Early intervention combined with a comprehensive treatment plan can help improve effectiveness of treatment during this phase. We do not endorse any one particular conservative treatment/program as the solution for CTS, but our purpose is to explore potential options. Further study is needed to determine the most beneficial and cost-effective treatments.
