    Wrist straps ?

    Had a bad fall two weeks ago and have a my wrist killing me since , but I can't keep that from me getting in the gym I've been doing.more legs lately to keep from it healing but I have to get my upper in !! Will wrist straps help as much as they can to keep it tight and help with healing ? I've heard bad and good things about wrist straps ?

    You mean wraps?

    Wrist wraps won't make whatever is wrong heal. It may help prevent further strain. That's all.

    You mean wraps? There's nothing wrong with them. Just don't use them until you need to.

    Just make sure you wrap the wrist and not the forearm

    You need to run the wrap over your palm to cast your wrist is what he's saying. Otherwise, you're wrapping your forearm, and they're useless.

    Wrist straps work great, but I would get medical attention and allow yourself to heal.

    Same thing happened to me. Wrist used to hurt like hell during barbell curls and bench press. I wrap that junk super tight and I have been okay. It eventually healed and the wraps allowed me to continue working out, albeit in slight pain and not severe pain.

    I have a bad wrist, so much so that I can't bench or military press without it being wrapped.

    The cheapest and best solution I have found is just get one of those cheap brown Velcro wraps that only go around the wrist once. Then just get athletic tape and wrap around that a couple times. You can adjust the tension on the tape to what fits you best.

    You can get the wrap for like $2 and 3 rolls of the athletic tape for like $3 all from Walmart. For $5 bucks you get enough to last for a year at least.

    Any wraps arround a joint help if the joint is causing pain. I kickboxed for over 6 years and ****ed up a knee, when i do legs i wrap my knee and it doesnt heart nearly as much as without wraps.
