As many boxers, mixed martial artists, and weight lifters know, it only takes a heartbeat to cause a wrist injury. One minute, you're sparring normally. The next minute, you've blocked a kick wrong, angled your hand the wrong way as you threw a punch, or simply put too much pressure on your wrist. Now, you're dealing with wrist pain. Over time, especially with repeated injuries, many athletes find themselves dealing with chronic wrist pain. Sometimes, training straight through it is the best option. Other times, managing the pain involves treating it properly.
