    Wrist Pain(reps for help)

    For the past 2 months, I've had this pain in my right wrist. It doesn't hurt when I workout besides when I let go of a barbell after doing curls. It hurts when I move it quickly. For example, it hurts when I shoot a basketball, swing a tennis racket, bowl, give someone a high five lol. Anyway, my problem is I'm supposed to be on the Varsity Bowling team but it really hurts when I bowl. What could it be? It would be nice to have some diagnosed injury to avoid the season.

    No one on this forum can diagnose your problem. It is advisable to consult with a hand/wrist specialist to obtain a diagnosis and appropriate treament.

    Wrist pain is very common especially in sports where you are using your arms and hands a lot.
    Some common causes could be :

    1) Tendonitis :
    Tendonitis is a common problem that can cause wrist pain and swelling. Wrist tendonitis is due to inflammation of the tendon sheath. Treatment of wrist pain caused by tendonitis usually does not require surgery.

    2) Sprain :
    Wrist sprains are common injuries to the ligaments around the wrist joint. Sprains can cause problems by limiting the use of our hands.

    3) Carpal Tunnel Syndrome :
    Carpal tunnel syndrome is the condition that results from dysfunction of one of the nerves in the wrist. In carpal tunnel syndrome the median nerve is compressed, or pinched off, as it passes through the wrist joint.

    4) Arthritis :
    Arthritis is a problem that can cause wrist pain and difficulty performing normal activities. There are several causes of arthritis, and fortunately there are a number of treatments for wrist arthritis.

    5) Ganglion Cyst :
    A ganglion cyst is a swelling that usually occurs over the back of the hand or wrist. These are benign, fluid-filled capsules. Ganglion cysts are not cancerous, will not spread, and while they may grow in size, they will not spread to other parts of your body.

    6) Fractures :
    A wrist fracture is a common orthopedic injury. Patients who sustain a broken wrist may be treated in a cast, or they may need surgery for the fracture.

    Some treatments for wrist pain are :

    ICE and HEAT

    Wrist supports whilst training to relieve the pain and to support the affected area.

    Anti Inflammatory medications to reduce the inflammation and soreness/pain.

    You should however see a specialist/doctor on the matter if :

    1) If the pain stays for a few days or can be felt when resting the wrist.

    2) If it stops you from carrying any objects.

    3) If there is any swelling around the joint and if you are unable to flex and straighten the wrist.

    Sounds like some tendonitis. Sometimes a quick 'jarring' movement can hurt more than a steady application of force with tendonitis. As Frantec mentioned, it would be good to see a pro (doctor, chiro or therapist) to get an expert opinion and hands on evaluation. Don't take any chances with injuries, as if they are untreated, they can get much worse and really slow down your training.

    Although well intended, the problem with such lists is that they do not lead to an accurate diagnosis and omit other possible conditions such as lunate ligament tears, gout (yes gout can attack the joints of the wrists and hands, etc, etc). No one should be their own doctor or depend on fellow posters to speculate regarding their underlying medical problems. IMO, seek out the opinion of an appropriate medical specialist and put the matter to rest.

    I agree. I wasn't intending to give a medical opinion. He asked for general feedback which was given and i also stated he should see a specialist/doctor too.
    Plus if he did actually have a ligament tear i think he would be in a lot more pain than he is suggesting and would have probably gone for medical help too without coming on here and asking the forum.

    That sounds like it since I don't have trouble at the gym. I'm going to try bowling this weekend and see how it feels. If it's bad I'll go to a doctor. The last thing I want is a doctor telling me not to go to the gym.

    I know what you mean about not being able to go to the gym... but sometimes a little rest is good for the joints.

    Once you get it sorted here are some exercises to do to aid in the prevention of wrist injuries. But only do these when the wrists are not injured...

    I've had good success dealing with an active release trained chiropractor. He has not told me to lay off the gym (my ortho doctor did tell me to stop lifting), and has been very effective at curing the issue.

    Not necessarily. In fact I have a ligament tear and have periods of no pain at all! That is why it is essential that an ongoing hand/wrist injury should be examined, diagnosed and treated by a medical professional. Yes we can offer our opinions but need to be careful in doing so because a delay in seeking appropriate medical intervention can lead a treatable medical condition becoming chronic and diffficult to cure.
