Hours after lifting, and especially by bedtime and when waking up the next day, my wrists are killing me. My forearms and even my hands get tight and contracted, almost cramped. I am also a professional musician (piano/keyboards), and it seems that the more my fingers work and contract in either activity, the worse things get.
Anybody else have wrist/forearm/grip issues and any effective strategies to deal with it? I am thinking of wearing some sort of wrist wrap or brace for lifting, and maybe even use straps, which I've never tried before. Then maybe ice my wrists afterwards...I looked at wrist wraps, straps, and braces on amazon; there are dozens of kinds, neoprene, elastic, rigid, with stays or without, gloves with wrist wraps, etc. If anyone has any experiences or advice to share, I'd like to hear it.
