3 Year Old Wrist Tendonitis Stops Me From Lifting Weights

by Marcus Mazza
(Grimsby, Ontario, Canada)

Hey there,

I am 22 and have been dealing with what I believe is Wrist Tendonitis for over 3 years.

I've been in a constant struggle with working out because everytime I do, eventually my wrist gets inflamed on the forearm side and in turn I can no longer lift weights because of the pain.

If I stop working out for a while, my wrist gets a lot better BUT as soon as I begin to work out about 2 weeks later my wrist will start inflaming again and hurt to the point where I cannot work out anymore.

I've tried wearing wrist braces but have had little success with it. It seems the only thing that makes it better is by doing little to no physical activity with it.

So my questions to you are as followed:

1. Is it the way I'm working out that is causing my pain?

2. What methods can I do to help relieve myself of wrist tendonitis and further prevent it from happening in the future?

If you could help me out with any of this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hi Marcus.

For conversation's sake, let's just go with that you have a Tendonitis dynamic.

Which means that you're stuck at the bad end of a Pain Causing Dynamic.

Is it how you are working out that is causing this? I don't know. I don't know how you work out. Certainly could be. But probably not.

I look at it more like your body isn't working correctly, as opposed to your body is perfect but you're using it wrong.

Your body has been in this state for 3 plus years, it's habitual now.

If your body is working correctly, you can do most anything.

What methods can you use?

Wrist splints and braces clearly isn't a good option for you.

1. You can learn How To Reduce Inflammation.

2. You can make sure your Magnesium is up to snuff.

And your Vitamin D too. Make sure your level is up between 50-80.

3. You could go see a really good massage therapist, or work on yourself.

4. You could get my Reversing Wrist Tendonitis ebook :)

Just because it's been 3 years doesn't mean it's particularly 'bad', it just means you haven't learned how to deal with it yet.
