Outer wrist injury from Mayurasana in Ask a yoga question Posted July 3, 2016 What are you doing in terms of recovery? If they are still sore, try contrast baths. Contrast baths are particularly effective for the wrist area as it's a smaller area so you don't need particularly large buckets. I'm not a particular fan of the contrast bath method as I have Lupus and the constant temperature change can bring on a flare. However, ice immersion (aka just the ice bath) or putting your wrists on ice (ice packs) are shown to work more effectively and using perhaps something like a wrap around your wrists for stabilization. My wrists bother me a lot - lupus loves to attack my wrists - so here is a list of my very favorite products and methods that are tested to help you feel better: 1. TigerBalm Ultra Strength. Particularly useful if you typed more than you wanted to. Simply take a small amount and massage really, really well into where you feel pain (I swear by this stuff.) 2. Ice Horse Ice Packs. Yes, these packs were made for horses and equestrians. They are the best darn ice packs I have ever found. You want an ice pack that will stay cold for three hours and is incredibly malleable? This is your ice pack. Buy two or three or four. (These came with my shoulder wrap. I seriously need ten more. I love them.) Mine are the 6"x10" They are awesome. http://www.icehorse.net/products/ice-horse-replacement-packs 3. Ace 3" wraps. Good for stability but you don't require a brace/splint. The 3" are longer than the 4". Bonus: if you are really lazy (or opportunistic like I am), they hold your ice packs in place. 4. Ice Immersion and/or Contrast Immersion Therapy https://runnersconnect.net/running-injury-prevention/contrast-bath-therapy-for-runners/ 5. Self-massage. Yep, a real massage feels great, but even going out, getting your favorite essential oil (peppermint is mine!) and massaging your own wrists properly will go a long way. Rich Poley on YouTube has a great one! In fact, I just did that one. Ahhh, happy wrists.
