Postman with wrist tendonitis will it keep coming back?
I have been a postman for 3 years. In the last few months my workload has become increasingly heavy with more magazines and catalogues etc.
I have been in an increasing amount of pain and my doctor tells me it is tendonitis. I am sure it is due to the way in which I hold bundles of post and lifting letterboxes.
It may sound ridiculous but I can't find any other way to do the job in the time required and not cause myself pain.
I am waiting to find out if they will put me on light duties but don't hold out much hope until after Christmas. I have bought a brace (which doesn't hold the thumb?) but it's not making a great deal of difference. Reading this site it's not going to do me any good especially not in the long term.
My question is really, if I ice it and / rest it for long enough that it doesn't hurt anymore will it just return once I start work again? I'm not sure it's an option to be on light duties forever.
Thanks in advance for any advice you have.
It doesn't sound ridiculous to me. You gotta move in certain ways to do what you gotta do.Wrist splints and braces
and Anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen
might get you through the day, but aren't long term options and won't fix anything, ever.
Ice dipping is great for
lowering pain levels, and for some people it's enough. But it's not a fix.
So yes, if you ice dip and Rest
, later pain and problem will almost certainly come back.
Rest is in no way shape or form any kind of fix.
If you learn How To Reduce Inflammation
and ice dip A LOT, then that will very much help you through the holiday busy season.
I'd DEFINITELY look at Magnesium for Tendonitis
Magnesium is a MUST for active bodies.
And since your job is essentially on the line, you may want to get Reversing Wrist Tendonitis ebook
And then, of course, do what it says to do.----------------------
