    Weight lifting wrist pain

    I know the right answer is probably to go see a doctor, but i am cheap and people on the internet know everything.

    I have pain in the middle of my right wrist when doing higher weights for dumbell presses (the gym i go to doesnt have bars), pushups, or when i bend my hand too far back. It is getting to where anything that pushes my hand back will casue pain, or i will lift and it will be ok, and then hurt later. I have pretty much given up on doing reguar pushups, or any high weight (65+ dumbells) Low weight still hurts sometimes, but isnt as bad. I can do knuckle pushups ones because my wrist doesnt bend. Anyone else ever have this problem, or know of how to fix it?

    Thank you all knowing internet people.

    Looks like you have a difficult choice to make between weightlifting and internet smut!

    Re: Weight lifting wrist pain

    I had this for a time about a year ago. I taped my wrist and used wrist wraps to keep everything in line. I also backed way off the volume and made sure to ice it after every workout. It stuck around longer than I'd have liked, but 2-3 months later I was back to normal. My PT buddy basically said it was likely a tendon issue.

    "It hurts when I do this."

    "Don't do that."

    Re: Weight lifting wrist pain

    Possible carpal out of place. I know people that have gone to doctors or chiropractors to have this fixed.

    Re: Weight lifting wrist pain

    You could tape/wrap your wrists, that would help with some support. I would stay away from anything that hurts it for a week or two and do other stuff.

    When you feel no pain, grab a pop bottle and fill it with sand, lift it up and down with just your hand/wrist (thumb facing the sky) and if doesn't hurt, I think you are close to being back. This a good wrist strengthening exercise as well.

    Once you injure something like this, you learn how important your wrist is (I see the jokes in there).

    Sounds like it could be a tendon issue or the carpals aren't moving well enough to allow for the motion you need. If there is numbness or tingling into your hand, it could be a carpal tunnel related problem.

    Lowering your resistance or modifying your grip would likely help to alleviate the issue, also as mentioned above buying some wrist wraps to keep your wrist is neutral position during the lifts may help. If not, see a physical therapist, I hear they are awesome

    Re: Weight lifting wrist pain

    on thing to help with pain when doing push ups is instead of your hands flat on the ground, get to dumbbells and grab the handles. That way your wrists aren't bent and the weight isn't on the joint so much.

    Re: Weight lifting wrist pain

    I got some type of cyst or something that would get angry when I lifted. It was on the top side middle of the wrist and hurt like a son of a gun when I would flex my hand back.

    The doctor told me to bang my wrist on a table to release the fluid in the cyst when it got angry.

    It actually works, but it's still the strangest thing a doc has told me to do. Now that I've given up heavy lifting the issue isn't an issue

    You realize Dr. J isn't a real doctor, right?

    This was my initial thought as well. Honestly, I'd give it a week though of having it wrapped up and not doing anything to aggrevate it. Sometimes the only way to get something to heal, is to rest it. If after a week it still feels the same, I personally would go get it checked out by a doctor.

    Funny thing is though, I 've reached that age that when I have these types of issues, the doctor usually asks, "What were you doing when it was hurting." Then says, "OK, don't do that anymore."
