Does anyone else have bad joint pain? Especially in the wrist?
Seems that it would be pretty specific to bike polo or tennis or any sport where your using one arm for a high impact sport. After 7-8 years of consistent balling, a few bad wrecks, multiple car>bike incidents and 10+ years of pretending I'm 19 years old, my shooting wrist is really starting to bother me. I have a brace that I wear sometimes during "recovery time" from the last time I got hit by a car, though I can't afford to keep see the orthopedist for PT. I have some aches that will just never really go away and a few of those I can a apply the HTFU strategy to, but my wrist is getting pretty crunchy. Vicodin and percoset certainly helps but theres only so much of that I can come across and its definitely not healthy. I remember a thread that I can't find anymore about aches, pains, and becoming an old person. Does anyone have any tips/pointers for painful wrists? I do a lot of conditioning exercises with the help of redtube.com but it still hurts after a long day of polo.
