One of our juniors has strained her wrist, the drawing hand, no bruising visable. Any ideas as to how she did it, and if so, what to do about it? Low Poundage bow, and no previous problems.
I disagree- first thing to do is suss out (a) what is causing the pain and (b) if there is any underlying problem/condition which can be fixed. All a support is likely to do is mask the problem until it becomes worse IMHO.tell her to get a YORK or a NIKE wrist support and try shooting witht hat. I have bad wrists and sometimes this helps and you can strap them up tight when shooting.
Yes - the idea of the wrist "stiffener" is to prevent a cocked wrist by making it impossible, but not to be tight enough to take the place of the muscles. It enables the correct exercises to take place. The underlying condition in the case of LF is hyper-flexibility, which we are addressing through strengthening exercises and the stiffener - not strapping or "support"I disagree- first thing to do is suss out (a) what is causing the pain and (b) if there is any underlying problem/condition which can be fixed.

Sound like the idea of wearing supportive ankle boots all the time if you have "weak" ankles after an injury- actually the worst thing you can do as they just weaken further, whereas the correct strengthening exercises will rebuild and strengthen the muscles and ligaments. Or so the physio I saw at the time told me and time and doing the exercises proved her right.
