I'm kinda surprised there isn't an official thread on this yet (*cough**cough*someone should make one*cough**cough*). When I think about it, I am deathly afraid of carpel tunnel. I believe this thought at least crosses the mind of every guitarist or bassist (I'm the second one ) at one point or another, so I thought I should ask; what can be done to avoid carpel tunnel? I know there's making sure your wrist isn't in an uncomfortable position (which can be tough for bassist who anchor their thumb while finger-picking), and I've heard stretching can help, but what else is there?

Edit: I KNEW I would spell it wrong....

It's carpal tunnel, am I not right?
I wouldn't like to get it, but I think by not abusing your wrists you should be able to avoid it.

You can get carpal tunnel from fapping too man
So i'd watch out for that too if you fear it that much.

I had it and rsi for years. Use low action and thin strings and just take it easy. I got a soft computer keyboard as well which helps.

Sam Totman (Dragonforce) developed it through playing video games on Xbox to often, as his wrists were constantly in uncofortable shapes, to avoid it, I'd just reccomend that you keep video game playing down and stop if your wrist hurts.
