Answer

Refer patients with suggested carpal tunnel syndrome to a specialist trained in clinical neurophysiology (usually a neurologist, physiatrist, or physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist) for possible electrophysiologic studies. These test results are important for diagnosis, instigation of appropriate treatment, determination of prognosis, and long-term follow-up.
