I just recently started working out again after taking a few months off and I have been having a lot of pain in my wrists and knees while working out and afterwards. Does anyone else have this issue? How do you relieve the pain?
RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) are always a helpful tool. Sometimes joints take awhile to re acclimate and modifications you normally did not use are helpful to ease you back in. For pushups, neutralize your wrist by using a grip or a dumbbell, do not go as deep for squats and lunges and even holding a sturdy chair or putting a hand on the wall to modify can also help. Slowly add back more until you are back to performing at the same level. If the pain continues, seeing a doctor is not out of the question.
