While driving my bike, my entire bike fell on my right hand. It has been a month now. Usually, I do not have pain while keeping my wrist normal. But when I lift heavy objects or move my wrist, I feel uneasy. What is the reason? What to do?
You have a history of bike fall on your right hand. It causes jerk and damage to internal carpal bones when the hand touches the ground. Wrist bones connect the hand to the forearms. Wrist movements are controlled by the forearm muscles. I suggest you do some exercise to strengthen your wrist muscles. Sit comfortably and bend your arm at the elbow. Rest your upper arm on your leg or a table and hold it with your other hand. Flex your hand as far as you can and downwards. In the same position of your hand, move your wrist from right to left and left to right. These help in relaxing your wrist muscles and helps to increase your range of motion.
Then stand with elbows bent with palm and fingertips at a level below the chin. Lower your hands towards the wrist and keep your hands pressed together close to your stomach. Try to do a squeeze ball exercise. Sit comfortably and take a ball in your hand, and wrap your fingers and thumb around it. Squeeze it hard as you can. Repeat this for ten seconds. Do these exercises twice a day. Apart from exercise, I suggest you take an X-ray of the wrist anteroposterior view (AP) or lateral view (LAT) to know whether there is any damage to wrist bones. Have a follow-up with the reports of the X-ray. Try to exercise as much as you can and do not put pressure to stretch your muscles. You can apply Diclofenac ointment followed by hot water fermentation while having pain.
