    Probably not worthy of a new thread, but I'm pretty happy that - for the first time since summer - my right wrist is not hurting.

    It was likely brought on by my use of a Prince Ripstick (29") and Thunderbolt (28.5") during summer league.

    At the end of summer I switched to a regular length Babolat Pure Drive GT and then to a Prince CTS Graduate. From those to a Prince Boron and POG mid. The regular length sticks stopped the progression of the wrist pain but it was still there.

    Today I was doing reverse wrist curls with rubber tubing when suddenly the pain stopped. Hopefully it doesn't recur but for the time being I'm pretty pleased.

    So, any wrist stories? And please keep them G rated:)

    Hope yours goes away Derick and Cheers to you!:)

    I haven't gone to the Dr or anything with mine. Although I'm probably doing the wrong thing, I believe in working injuries back into shape.

    I had 2 years off tennis due to a shoulder injury while snowboarding. I couldn't serve or throw a ball without crying out loud pain - not very dignified.

    I gave it lots of rest and started assisted dips and pushups, with light barbell work. Now I can crank a serve as hard as before - zero pain. I'm hoping the wrist follows that same sort of recovery. Time will tell.

    You are 100% correct! I've been keeping up the exercises and it's much better. I'm using KT tape when I hit and it seems to help as well.
