Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If you don't need surgery, caring for your condition is much the same as preventing it:

  • Avoid moving your wrists the same way repeatedly.
  • Wear a brace or splint if suggested by your doctor.
  • Follow through with recommended exercises.
  • Note activity that causes pain, swelling or numbness in your thumb and wrist, try to avoid it, and share that information with your doctor.
