Climbing Injuries - Tell me what you have! 27-Feb-2020 At 9:56:05 AM PThomson
I have a history of Dupuytren's in my family, and sure enough over the last few years it's begun to manifest more and more prominently, and is definitely exacerbated (in terms of pain, at least) by climbing (and in particular training!).

A good example of its progression, is that in the last year or so, moving into a standard "push up" position has now made the primarily affected hand extremely painful to the point of almost being impossible to straighten for that position.

I *have* been to a hand surgeon to discuss at what point surgical intervention is necessary, and the surgeon in question spent a great deal of time trying to talk me *out* of having a Needle Aponeurotomy (he seemed to think that the risk of nerve damage is extremely high, despite a substantially shorter recovery time compared to Palmar fasciotomy, albeit with lower success rate). Doing a bit of online research seems to indicate that Needle Aponeurotomy is not very commonly performed in Australia?

I'd love to hear if anyone here has had experience with the Needle Aponeurotomy.

Mikl, what route did you end up taking?
