Pain on left wrist Bone bothering me if I


Q: Pain on left wrist. . Bone bothering me.. if I move it around you can hear popping noises


A:   Thank you for writing to us.

I think that you have a soft tissue injury. This might have happened due to a fall or excessive use or in sleep. The best thing to help you is to start RICE on the joint.

RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. This will help you to reduce the swelling and pain.

Rest the wrist, do not exert and lift weights or such activity
Ice the wrist for 15 mins at a time every hour
Compress the wrist using a wrist sleeve or a crepe bandage
Elevate the wrist to allow blood flow back to the heart

Hope this helps you.
