Coping with wrist pain


Sorry if there is already a thread about this. I couldn't find one.

Anyway, how do you deal with the wrist ache? Anyone got it yet?

Stretches.

I give people that advice so often that I wrote a blog post on it: Vitally important exercises for writers. The post has links to a workspace planner tool and a PDF of stretches that you can print out and stick to the wall above your computer.

THat's really helpful Siana. THanks. I hadn't even thought about the swelling being a symptom (my husband noticed my writes were swollen last night).

Sometimes i stop and rotate them and they pop and they feel better. Which i've been dealing with it for a while especially during the school year. I have disgraphia so it hurts to write in general and my hands will sometimes lock till i fix them manually but, that's another neurological problem. A lot of the time if the pop doesn't work i just deal with it and or take a short break

Back when I had really bad wrist pains, I used a dictation program on my PC, Dragon NaturallySpeaking. It is really awesome now, and there's an even better version coming out in a few days. Of course, this doesn't help those who write with pen and such. -_-

My doctor eventually got me to exercise an hour each day, and that really turned the tide. OK, some days it is only half an hour, but I try to spend some time each day. The blood flowing through every part of my body works wonders over time, healing anything from scratches to wrist pains. Highly recommended. If you are physically able, getting your pulse up a few notches each day really helps.

I have these and I find that they really help me a lot. They're just compression gloves, but they're meant to be carpal tunnel preventative and they increase blood flow to the wrist / hands. I adore them.
