Joint Pain Relief/Wrist Pain not going away


Hi Gary,

I hurt my left wrist while weight-lifting about 3 months ago.
Doctor diagnosed that it was a sprain and that I just need have a brace on for a couple months. We took X-rays and there seemed to be nothing wrong with the bone.

But now I'm worried after 3 months because it still hurts when I Try to do push-ups, pull-ups or any weight-lifting. It's been 3 months (I don't wear the brace anymore after 2 months) and although there's no obvious pain in daily tasks, it still hurts whenever I try to exert some significant weight on it.

How can I accelerate healing so I can go back to the gym? Should I keep wearing a wrist splint or ice?

Thank you so much

Hello Jeremy,

Sorry to hear about the wrist.  Sometimes when you strain the ligaments in your wrist (ligaments connect bone to bone) it does take a while to heal, but 2 months is usually about what it takes.  So, at this point I do think there are some things you can do yourself that may accelerate your healing so you can get back to the gym.

I have a completely free website
where I have videos for fixing every single joint in the body.

I'm going to recommend you go to my Wrist Pain Relief page,
and follow along with the videos that will show you how to free your wrist from any inappropriate tension
that may be inhibiting proper function.

It's great that you've had x-rays done and they didn't really find anything.  That means the odds are that you now just have some tight tissue that needs to be released, so your wrist has the space and freedom it needs to not get jammed when doing certain actions.  I've personally had similar injuries and they do get better much faster when you do the things I show in my videos.

All the best,
Gary Crowley

I can show 95 percent people how to relieve or eliminate their own joint pain for basically every joint in their body. 95 percent of joint pain, even chronic joint pain, is due to the shortening and tightening of tissue around joints. I show people how to release that tight tissue that is causing their pain. Every joint and every person is unique, but the principles to free yourself from pain are the same in 95 percent of cases.
