Were you looking for information about Carpal Tunnel Treatment? Carpel tunnel treatment is a common misspelling of carpal tunnel treatment.
 
Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome may include both surgical and nonsurgical methods. Initial treatment generally involves resting the affected hand and wrist, using ice packs, and avoiding activities that may worsen symptoms. There are two different types of carpal tunnel surgery: open release and endoscopic surgery.
 
Recurrence of carpal tunnel syndrome following treatment is rare. Examples of alternative therapies that may be used to relieve symptoms include acupuncture, chiropractic care, and yoga. While the effectiveness of acupuncture and chiropractic care has not been proven, yoga has been shown to reduce pain and improve grip strength in people with carpal tunnel syndrome.
