Six weeks ago I fell snowboarding in Ã?re, Sweden. Landed on my left hand/wrist. The resulting pain has kept me out of the gym. Any distinct pushing motions cause pretty moderate pain and discomfort. Common sense tells me that if it hurts, don't do it.
When I went to see two different Dr's here in Sweden, neither of them seemed to believe there had been any type of fracture, but possibly some distortion (whatever that might mean) of tendons/bones/ligaments, etc. They advised that working out would be fine and gave me, for lack of better terms, an Ace bandage.
Went to the gym yesterday and pushed to 40kg Db's on the flat bench and experienced pretty moderate pain, still.
Has anyone had a similar experience or was able to work through a mild injury like this through some sort of 'active recovery'? I am hesitant to cause more pain on my hand/wrist in case it further complicates the problem and I've been misdiagnosed.
Any help would be appreciated.
