Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Splint

If tingling, discomfort, and/or numbness in the thumb and hand wake you at night, a splint can be helpful.

Wear this splint at night to help maintain a neutral position of your wrist and hand. By doing so you will keep the carpal tunnel open and maintain proper circulation to the median nerve. This often eliminates the tingling, discomfort, and/or numbness.

NOTE: make certain that the wrist splint is comfortable and not too tight. You should be able to slip your index finger between the brace and your skin on both ends of the brace.
