Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Pathway

Start your treatment and watch your symptoms

As you try the treatment options you chose, remember that if something doesn’t work the way you thought it would, think about other options. Talk with your healthcare provider to find what will work for you. Your healthcare provider will want to see you regularly (every 8 to 12 weeks) to see how the treatment is working and if you need to make any changes.

Watching your symptoms is important. Let your healthcare provider know right away if you notice:

  • redness and warmth (this could be a sign of an infection)
  • any symptoms that develop quickly (in less than 1 week)
  • severe symptoms like numbness, pain, or weakness that don’t go away
  • changes in how the muscles in your wrists and hands look

If you can’t reach your healthcare provider and need health advice or information, call Health Link anytime, day or night, by dialing 811.
