3) grip your knuckle tight, straighten arm forward like trying to punch someone in front, slowly lift your knuckle.
Which exercise do you feel pain at the wrist?
Use the other hand, Grip your injured wrist with your thumb onto the area whereby a watch face will be if your wear a watch on the injured wrist and repeat the exercise. Any pain?
Thank you for the responses everyone... very helpful. At some point I will get this checked out. In regards to form, i actually have a very 'non wristy' stroke on both sides... eastern forehand and 1 handed backhand. If anything one of the strengths of my game is my stroke mechanics (now if that just translated into wins...grrrrr).
Regarding the quoted test above I had a some trouble following the written instructions, but to the best of my knowledge, that area that you are referring to... 'watch face' part of my wrist is definitely where the pain is.
