Discussion on: How I Fixed My Carpal Tunnel Pain

I've been climbing (boulder) for 3 years now and CTS has been getting worse for a little over a year. I have tried using a regular mouse, a vertical mouse and a trackpad (on a 2015 MacBook Pro), results don't change that much.

An osteopath friend told me climbing and mouse/trackpad using are different movements and sometimes are opposite so some bones might move in the wrist, causing pain.

I recently had about 5 small bones move in my right wrist. An osteopath put some of them back, but climbing brings the pain back almost every time…

Weird how a similar treatment has very different effects on people 😊
