I go to a Chiropractor once a month. bliss for body and brain.

Will look at other Carpal remedies. plus. will look at adding wrist supports to Past Horizons. - WE may have a surgical Support section Wink
If you stopped selling the trowels you wouldn't need to stock the wrist supports . . .
goy my carpel problems in year 20 - the last 10 have required regular chiropractoring
not sure what hurts the most
Perhaps floppy trowels might do it?
Judging by the Wiki description of the surgury I'd avoid that as long as possible....

Floppy trowels are a good idea, much less painful at tea break when you forget they're in your back pocket, and no more ripping the a*** out of you favourite digging jeans when climbing through fences :face-approve:
I have had the opperation to my right wrist-the onset was incredibly fast (few weeks from everything going wrong to being diagnosed afte nerve conduction testing). I will need the opperation to my left in the near future. Right wrist was 'successful' though there is a high risk of problems associated with the procedure so I will put off the left as long as I am able just in case. One of the side effects is -after the ligament has been snipped it forms a tighter band around the wrist- so it feels like I am permanently wearing a bracelet. I now wear a bracelet so my mind is not constantly trying to figure out what is (not) around my wrist. They actual procedure was not a barrel of laughs either.....
Thanks for that info Digger. Seems like this is an impoortant H&S issue that has been substantially ignored as an problem for us field archaeologists ( and computer bods) Should it be seen as important as wearing a helmet? as knee pads? should a wrist guard be seen as essential work wear protection?
