According to the doctor that treated my bilateral CTS, many people curl
their hands under their chin when they are asleep, a kind of
back-to-the-womb thing. Wearing splints at night is one of the best and
easiest things to do.

About splints, though. I would caution anyone about buying splints over the
counter. Unless they are properly fitted, they can provide no help at all
(best case) or do further harm to your wrists (worse case). A physical
therapist can ensure a perfect fit.
