I would second a few visits to a physical therapist. I've had to rehab more than my fair share of injuries (in the process right now yet again - "curse" of being an adrenaline junkie), and a PT can really help you with things that you can do to strengthen things without further aggravating your old injury. There's definitely a balancing act there that can be very hard to find if you're not familiar with the process.

I have broken my left wrist as a kid, and then broke the radius and ulna (along with several hairline fractures in my hand and chipped knuckles) a few years ago. I went through PT, then back to working out. I had to modify a few exercises for quite sometime, and I still have to keep an eye out for tendonitis (there's still a plate on the arm that takes up extra space). Those are all things a sports PT can help you with.

Doesn't mean you won't be able to do those other activities, just need to build things up to it!

In addition to the article Coach Jen suggested, it may be beneficial for you to work with a physical therapist since you are dealing with a previously injured joint. Your doctor should be able to refer you.

I'm just beginning an exercise program and have a long way to go.

Years ago I broke my wrist seriously, and right now I'm unable to put much weight on it for any length of time (downward dogs, push ups, etc.). It immediately gets sore and fatigued. But I know those exercises are amazing, and I'd like to include them in my workouts.

Does anyone know if wrist strength improves with continued exercise? And, in particular, has anyone had experience with strengthening a previous injury similar to mine?

Thank you!
