You already have a gadget that is perfect to get your hand moving again. It’s called your other hand. Use it to stretch all the muscles in and around your arm and hand – bend your fingers and hand back and forwards, twist it, do elbow exercises and shoulder exercises – do them little and often throughout the day and you’ll be right as rain in a few weeks.
I’m guessing that you didnt bother with the almost identical exercises that the physio you saw after your operation gave you…
Had a bone graft on my forearm 8 weeks ago. Cast was taken off on Tuesday, looking good now but I fractured my wrist on the same side 2 years ago and now because it’s been immobilised for 8 weeks it’s like a block of (hard)wood.
Has anyone ever made a contraption to help get a wrist moving again?
I’m thinking elastic on a stick level of sophistication.
years ago i had a broken scaphoid and was in pot for 3 months. i found that filling a basin with warm water and then moving/pressuring my wrist into various angles (while under water and warmed up) got me started pretty well.
