    I fell off my road bike on some ice on Boxing Day, wrist has been a little sore ever since, without feeling significantly better. It hurts mtbing now, but it ok/usable for most other stuff.

    Is a physio likely to be able to help?

    maybe 🙂 probably wont hurt – well it might hurt

    May be able to point you to a diagnosis though, went with mine after a snowrock and ice boarding crash in Scotland 7 years ago, still flares up every so often.

    For a wrist they can’t really do much. I’ve usually just been recommended exercises to strengthen it.

    As a single bloke,*I’m pretty sure Al knows all of them…

    I’d get an Xray. The wrist is notoriously under diagnosed for breakages, and if not caught quickly may not heal well.

    Where are you based?

    It probably is worth being seen by someone with a wrist interest and ruling out a scaphoid fracture / ligament injury

    If near Chelsea pop in!

    When I broke my scaphoid I originally thought I’d just sprained my wrist. After a few months of slight discomfort a physio friend who was visiting suggested it might be the scaphoid. So yes, go get it checked out.

    Yep,did my Scaphoid and thought it was a sprain.

    2nd time thought it was Scaphoid….was just a sprain,but that took 12 weeks to sort itself out

    SO, GP for potential scaphoid?

    I’d go straight to A&E and get an xray, GP will send you there anyway. I ended up with a screw in mine after farting about with various doctors and splints.
