How long will it take to recover ?

As with any condition, there is a huge range in terms of severity and response to treatment.  We find that most patients notice significant improvement in their symptoms within 6-8 weeks of starting their splinting and exercise program.  Some will report their symptoms have disappeared completely after just a few nights of splint use, while others have no benefit at all from physiotherapy, and may require a cortisone injection or surgery. 

Once again, the most important step for you to take is to find a good physiotherapist, who has the expertise to examine your upper limb from neck to fingertip, and who can guide you through the available treatment options.
