  • wrist problems

    im beginning to develop a bit of an RSI in my wrist and i was wondering if i should keep training my wrists (the usual wrist press ups etc.) or take it easy? Although im pretty sure its just because im using a keyboard at work most of the day could my training also be contributing to it?

    RSI? (sorry I am feeling very dumb today!)

    If you are on the computer all day, take measures to relieve any stress on your wrist.

    I just moved and I still have my computer on a temporary desk and I noticed my whole arm hurting like crap the other day! First I didn't know why, but then when I found the aching spot on my upper arm and the pain shot through to my wrist I finally got it! (less computer time for me - but I am only playing...)

    You should definetly see a doctor about it. It's kinda tough to tell from a far, some conditions you can (and should) work through, others you need to give it time to heal!

      you need to do constant wrist stretches. i learned how to do a number of wrist stretches from an aikido master, which i practice everyday. not only are my wrists strong, they are flexible. ive had my wrists bent backwards a few times in jiu jitsu only to escape the wrist lock because they have become so flexible.

      just stretch them out good and proper a few times a day, everyday. they should get stronger and better.

        Alright thanks for the help guys, I will do some wrist stretches and see how it goes, if it continues then i better just go see a doctor, though im one of those people who will avoid the Doctors unless i absolutely have to go.

        RSI is a repetitive strain injury

          LOL! Thanks!

          But in all honesty go see the doc first! Because nerve conditions get worse if left untreated, and it could be something else all together!

            You need some rest and boxing wraps.
