Follow up on my carpal tunnel dilemma
My regular doc says if I go to a neuro-surgeon, he will want to operate. Surgeons like to operate, just like contractors like to build things. He suggested I go to a sports therapist before seeing a surgeon. I have made an appointment to see an sports therapist who is really into biking. He's an accomplished triathlon guy. He is going to analyze my wrist position while I have my bike on a stationary trainer. He said he has seen many bikers with this condition, and believes biking can be a major source of the problem. He said I might want to try aero-bars, where the weight is on your elbows. I'll report back to The Forum after my sports therapist appointment. Stay tuned!
