What is the best nonsurgical therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)? Evidence-Based Answer: Local corticosteroids injections, splinting, and therapeutic ultrasound all appear to be effective in the short-term treatment of CTS compared with placebo or no treatment. Ergonomic keyboards do not appear to be effective. Among effective treatments, none were clearly superior and no head-to-head trials were evaluated (SOR: B, systematic reviews).
