Non-Operative Pain Management

Non-operative pain management options for carpal tunnel syndrome would include an anti-inflammatory, such as Ibuprofen. In my experience, it's not particularly helpful but it certainly would be worth a try. That along with splint immobilization and perhaps a cortisone injection. In my experience, heat or ice aren't going to help with carpal tunnel syndrome either.
