    Well I started off with Karpel tunnel and trying to guard against aggravating that I ended up with tendonitis in both my friggin wrists. After dove shooting my 391 Extrema both my wrists not under the thumb other side were on fire. I just can not shake aggravating the condition and shooting is not good for it. Has any one had it and what did you do? How long to heal? Did you do even a little shooting or have to lay off for a few months? Help please

    I AM TYPING 1-HANDED RIGHT NOW DUE TO TENDONITIS, BUT MINE IS IN THE ELBOW. PULLED OUT OF THE HC AT THE GRAND B/C OF IT. WASN'T GETTING BETTER WITH REST, SO GOT A CORTISONE SHOT 2DAY, AND A SPLINT. NOT ALLOWED 2 USE IT. WE'LL SEE HOW THAT GOES. SORRY 4 ALL CAPS, BUT IT'S EASIER 2 TYPE THAT WAY. HAVEN'T SHOT FOR 4 WEEKS.

    you may want to try magnet therapy...Bioflex magnet company, believe they are out of Florida seems to be the best. Lots of pro ball players use the products...I have used them for several years and had great results for pain in the elbow and in the neck from severe whiplash.
    Check it out with your Doctor if you have doubts.
    Good luck, puablo

    Get the carpul tunnel taken care of as quickly as possible. Go to your dr for tendonitis treatment also. Recurve be very careful of getting the cortizone shots. I'm sure the dr will tell you but if too much is given and the body calls for it and realizes that it's already in the system that gland stops producing it and goes dormant not to start up ever. I have an acquaintence who was in a car accident and needed the cortizone for her injuries. She is having a tough time getting it regulated as her body no longer produces it's own and we must have it every day. That was about 18 years ago I don't know if todays medicines have the same effect. I do know she still misses a lot of work and goes to the dr's all the time to get her medicines regulated. Dan

    Get to your local Ortho and get it checked out. I got into trapshooting after a TFCC tear that was not treated. (golfing) When I finally went in, the MD confirmed with an MRI, but was already scheduling the surgery. They found out that the TFCC was beyond repair, think of this as a torn up knee meniscus that is past help. Also found another partially torn ligament in the middle of the wrist. The surgery itself is nothing, the recovery is a b*tch. Had the MD done a full repair, he told me to get ready for about a month in the cast and then several months of PT to get mobility back. In my case it was 10 days in a soft cast and about a month of PT.

    Prior to the surgery I had severe burning, difficult to rotate the wrist and a real problem making a fist and no hand strength. I still have issues with anything that requires torquing, like using a socket wrench. Surprisingly, shooting doesn't bother me. I can only shoot about 50 rounds of handgun now.

    Hope that helps,

    Larry the Cable Guy said he started getting immediate relief from wrist pain when he bought one of those lifesize blow-up dolls. I think they're called "inflate-a-dates"? .....Rick
