Consant Updates! Sometimes!

Well, here it is, the wrist. A rather complicated bunch of tendons, muscles, nerves, and bones. An amazing bit of creation, it is also quite easy for some of us to damage ours. If you've fallen, on yours, don't delay. See a doctor right away.

How can you tell if some part of your wrist is injured? There are several possible problems that can cause wrist pain. Here's a few:

1. Misalligned bones. This can cause the tendons to have to take a different path, and can cause inflammation due to the tendon having to move at an angle rather than straight, like God intended.

2. Damaged tendons. They can be torn, or have growths on them, which will cause pain when they have to move through their sheaths.

3. Muscle issues. Whether the muscles in your forearm or wrist are torn, have knots, or are otherwise injured, it can cause pain in your hand. Sometimes, pain in the hand can be a result of a muscle problem elsewhere in the arm. Personally, when I get pain in my index finger, I can massage the knotted muscle in my forearm and the pain goes away.

4. Growths. There can be growths, such as cysts or even tumors, that grow on or next to the tendons which can cause pain and limited movement.

Talk to your doctor about potential problems with your wrist, and don't let it go for too long. If you do, it will be harder and harder to fix.

Your post reminded me of those "The More You Know" public service announcements on NBC. But your post actually had useful information instead of Carson Daly telling parents not to leave their children unattended in mall parking lots.
