Climbing Injuries - Tell me what you have! 28-Feb-2020 At 3:37:45 PM Stugang
My dad got diagnosed with it in his 40s and has needed a couple of surgeries as his hands have totally curled up a couple of times. Turned out cos of that I found out I had it in my right hand at age 14 which is super early for detection.

Funny thing is that it used to hurt a lot when climbing especially training (started climbing and training around the same age as detected the dupuytrens) Ive always been a bit freaked thinking what it would mean if I went down the path of my dad as his hands really did get bad. However 35 years later it has barely progressed although a few years ago a nodule started in my left hand too.

Weve always speculated (with nothing other than my own case as evidence) whether the work and hurt on my hand through climbing actually helped in curbing the extreme symptoms my dad got. Not sure but it actually gives me less grief now than when I was a teenager.

Alcohol is also meant to be a contributor - and for scientific purposes I have tested and confirmed that the severity of my symptoms seem to be immune to that risk factor too, no matter how much alcohol I consume.
