hasbeenish39 dayslack of skill caused it.... overworking it certainly doesnt make it heal quickly... one day of intense stretching of the wrist made it completely mobile in 72 hours details

jys42 daysEfter 6 v. Fortfarande stelhet och klarar inte helt att komma till extremlägen, men rätt ok rörlighet. Kan nu börja belasta med vikter och strecha för sista rörligheten. Var till sjukgymnast den 8/4 och fick många tips. Fortfarande ont i handleden som nästan blivit värre och värre. Även där börja sty med vikt för att klara belastning. Hade tejpat 2 dagar och det gjorde mindre ont, kan göra om det för att lära handen att hitta rätt läge.details

o-darn113 daysLikely to hurt for a year. Stiffness continues and will continue to work on flexing it. Will wear splint when orienteering probably until 2017 -- just to protect. Hurts most when driving car -- go figure. details

Vaala152 daysdetails
cedarcreek171 daysFirst wisdom: If you think it might be broken, splint first and then go to the doctor. This is the second time I've seen a possible break and didn't split it (once on someone else's break, and once for my own break). It will feel a million times better if you splint it. I had a custom built brace made from a white plastic called Orthoplast (which is a term like Bandaid). It wasn't too expensive (after insurance), and it fit better than any other brace I tried. It was more comfortable a...details
RLShadow174 daysI'm not 100% recovered (as of late Feb. 2015), but I don't think I'll ever be totally recovered. I am back to playing pickleball right handed, and I can do most things that I used to be able to do. Still somewhat limited on range of motion and strength.details
