Wrist Injury

My wrist has given me a lot of pain for quite some time, but I always just worked through it. The last two months though have been especially bad so I finally went and got x-rays. The doctor basically told me that for the next two to three months I could not be load bearing on my wrist more than 5lbs, or I would end up having a surgery on it that could take four to six months to recover from. So basically for the next couple of months all I can do is pulling, but no pushing. No pushups, cleans, wall ball shots or anything that puts direct pressure on my downward pressure on my wrist. I know that this is not completely debillitating, but any suggestions would be extremely helpful to get me through this and still stay as fit as possible.

Re: Wrist Injury

Start doing some light forearm rehab. Rice bucket would probably be a good idea.

Ask for WOD.. at the very least keep doing lower body stuff.

Re: Wrist Injury

What type of injury is it?

If you can pull it is time to up the pull up numbers and lower body stuff

Re: Wrist Injury

The injury is called ULNOCARPAL ABUTMENT W/ ULNAR POSITIVE VARIANCE and there is an old avulsion fracture fo the Ulnar Styloid. These are all fancy words for saying that my Ulna is longer than my Radius do to damaging the growth plate when I was younger. The doctor thinks that by relieving all downward pressure greater than 5lbs for 2-3 months will hopefully correct this. Otherwise it is time for surgery. My concern lies a lot with keeping my chest and front shoulder strength balanced with my back strength. If there are any exercises that would do this please tell. Thanks.
