Why Choose Steroid Injections for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Steroid injections are often done as a conservative treatment to help patients avoid surgery on their carpal tunnel.  Many times, this may be all a patient will need.  If the injury or condition is more serious, we have other conservative interventions that may be more helpful.
