I started Krav Maga lessons last January (2015). In my 4th or 5th session, I injured my wrist. I didn't feel it immediately, but after some hours it started hurting. I went to the doctor; they took x-rays but couldn't see anything broken. They wrapped it up and told me not to use my hand for the next 3 weeks.
After three weeks my wrist was much better, but I still had pain when swimming or doing push-ups (last June).
This September, I decided to give Krav Maga another try. I talked to my instructor about my wrist problem and he said that maybe it's good not to punch hard with my right hand. As a beginner, that's kind of difficult to control.
After the first training session, I actually felt my wrist hurting again. Not so much as previously, but a small constant pain on the upper part of my palm (the extension of the middle finger).
I plan to visit a doctor and get a CT (x-rays don't always show everything). My question is what should I do:
- Should I continue Krav Maga and really try not to use my right hand so much (is this even possible)?
- Should I stop Krav Maga once and for all (also any other martial art)?
- Should I take a break (from the break) and when I feel better then start strengthening my wrist with some exercises?
