    Wrist injury

    Early march ( 2 months ago) my wrist started hurting so I only did workouts that didnt seem to hurt it. It was getting better until recently when I changed up my workouts and started doing more. Now my wrist feels like it did the first week of the injury. I dont want to stop working my upper body for an entire month (or possibly more) to let it heal. If I halved the weight and double the reps (or until failure) on workouts would that prevent me from losing any muscle mass or would I just be wasting my time? I am just sick of this wrist injury and want to be more careful this time around. I am sure if I did no workouts it would heal faster but a month off of working doesnt sound good. Any suggestions?

    I work at a hospital so I talked to a doctor about it briefly. He made it sound like it was most likely a torn membrane or something because of the location of the pain. I think one other possible thing he mentioned was tendonitis.

    skip talking to a GP and have a chat with an orthopedic hand surgeon, or at least an orthopedic surgeon who isn't a hand specialist. I would give it a break for a couple of weeks and then ease into things wearing wrist wraps and see you how you do.

    According to my opinion, you must give it rest until it heals completely. Then start again gradually and i prefer to use wrist straps, they provide enough support to wrist while lifting heavy weight.
