So you have carpal tunnel. What's the first line of treatment? Generally wearing the splints at night. Different practitioners have different thoughts about the positioning of the splints, but generally wearing them at night is a good thing to start with. It's conservative, it's safe, it's hard to get into trouble, and probably 40-70% of people will be made better with that.
