Default Wrist tendonitis

I have wrist tendonitis from boxing, thai boxing, etc. Too much too fast, not enough rest.

Does anyone know anything I can do to speed up the healing? I can do pushups without much difficulty, kipping pullups are out of the question right now.

Help please, I want to do a physical job, train in mma, and even make typing for college not something I have to worry about.

Nothing that hurts, that should be obvious.

Contrast hydrotherapy.

You might actually have to take some time off from most of your training.

I wrote this article on tendonitis that may help:

http://www.eatmoveimprove.com/2009/08/on-tendonitis/

Is it on the lateral side (thumb) or medial side (pinky)? Tendonitis to the lateral side usually takes a bit longer to heal b/c of not a lot of blood flow over there unfortunately

Think of it as an opportunity to work on your back squat for a few weeks.

Are you sure it's tendonitis, or does your wrist just hurt? I went to my doc when my wrist hurt a lot (limited ROM, etc, etc), he gave me a stronger version of aleve to tame some bad inflammation that was going on in my wrist. Problem solved.

Good article Steven. I just wish someone had explained all that to me thirty years ago particularly this bit.....

Often if you have sore joints or tendons are starting to become sore, this is when you should know that you should back off from exercise. This is often a sign of excessive volume. Continuing to train through this may often lead to more detrimental overuse, and if continued beyond that chronic overuse which is very difficult to get rid of. This will also hinder your training significantly, so it is not advisable ever to push through any type of pain.

My wrists have been injured for over a year since I had to train for the CPAT and swim test instead of resting them.

Alright so ice, take anti-inflammatories, light exercises, and stretches.

Contrast baths and I've heard applying heat is good also.

Anything I missed?

If you were going to do anything I would suggest the:

Rest, ice, fish oil (don't really like anti-inflams), stretching and light eccentrics.

Biggest thing is to normalize through rest and ice, then begin rehabbing.
