Weakness in the Wrist

Women about 20 years old of slender build sometimes complain of pain in the wrist with exertion (often disappearing at rest) which radiates along the upper side of the forearm. On examination, a degree of hypermobility and laxity of the wrist may be noticed, but often no significant abnormality can be found. Sometimes a small swelling, or ganglion, can be found on the back of the hand. This should not prevent training, but a support bandage should be applied around the wrist and strength training carried out in parallel with the usual training. The symptoms often disappear in time.
