flexor carpi ulnaris issue
 
So I've had an issue with my arm/wrist rotation since mid-October. I tried taking extended time off, but it actually feels better with training and movement...though it is exacerbated with heat. Anyway, I had my MD friend (who used to be an MMA cageside physician--how cool is that?!) look at it, and she said it was just some tendonitis in my flexor carpi ulnaris. She recommended a little bit of ibuprofen as needed, wearing a wrist band while typing and perhaps some strengthening exercises (squeezing a ball, etc.) Anybody else have any strengthening exercise ideas?

If it's chronic I'd avoid the ibu and do eccentrics + heat + massage to the muscle belly to help take stress off the tendon.

Weird; heat and massage both make it way worse.

Then don't do that then. o_o

I'd go with regular tendonitis protocol even though it's stuck around a while then.

Weird, because RICE doesn't help either. Only thing that really helps is movement. I am just trying to find strengthening exercises other than squeezing this tennis ball.

That's an odd cookie.

See if some high rep rice bucket helps any?

Why would I do high rep RICE if RICE makes it work? That makes no sense.

I was just looking for PT exercises... squeezing a ball seems to help.

Consider extensors work with rubber bands
