Your Wrist and You – Dealing with Chronic Pain in this Crucial Joint
Chronic pain is often thought of as something that affects the large joints, like your knees and shoulders. But any of your joints can be a source of chronic pain. That’s something Michael can attest to.
While chronic in the wrist is often associated with manual labor, Michael is one of a growing number of people whose source of pain came from repetitive motion – in his case typing and working on the computer.
As a second gig to supplement his regular work, Michael built a thriving free-lance business as a writer and editor. But as his business grew, so did the stress on his wrists from daily typing. Michael tried wrist rests and ergonomic keyboards, which helped somewhat, but the pain kept coming back.
Examining his options
Michael examined his options and found several avenues to explore in his quest to eliminate his chronic wrist pain.
- Over-the-counter (OTC) pain killers, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil). While these have provided some relief for Michael, he hesitated to take these medications on a continuing basis.
- Physical therapy is another option. Specific exercises to strengthen the wrist and ensure proper ergonomics when typing or doing other repetitive activities can provide relief in many cases.
- Surgery is an avenue to explore when there is a specific underlying condition, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

A path that Michael found productive was to treat the underlying issue – inflammation in his wrist caused by repetitive motion. While medications like Advil help reduce inflammation, Michael chose a different approach and began using UnFlame Herbal Supplement.
