wrist pain

Postby ride57 » Sun Aug 08, 2010 12:49 pm

Whenever I had practiced punching/sparring/wristlocks etc, my left wrist would always hurt. I had always thought that I was just doing it wrong.

Turns out my left ulna is shorter that my right. My wrist is just unstable. Now I know why it would always hurt even though I made extra effort to do it properly. I had broken that arm 2 times when I was in 8th grade. Pretty much back to back.

Good that now you have an answer to your ongoing problem.

Maybe if you wear wrist braces to stabilize the joint, it will compensate for the short bone and allow you to train?

I will try a brace or support for my wrist and see how it works out.
