Ow ow ow !!! Q. about wristbands...

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Microbass, Jan 4, 2003.


  1. Hey guys, to start off, I have to say that I have tendonitus. But no way can I put down my bass! not no how, baby!!

    I warm, stretches, and then slowly playing scales, then building up the speed. I do this for about 15 mins.

    After 30mins of playing, my wrist can get sore (left hand).

    So I is wondering - will wristbands maybe help? If so, What kind? Plain sweatband? Or a special Arthritic one? (what the &%$! is that?! :p)

    Thanks :)
     
  2. eh...i just play witha regualr sweat band, it doesnt do anything for my wrists, but i wouldnt know, for i am young and innocent.

    Check your hand positioning, most likely its improper and causing you problems.

  5. You can find one of those copper arthritis bracelets at any golf shop. I'm sure they have one or two of those in Scotland, right? I tried one for a while, didn't really notice a difference. I think the whole copper/magnet thing is all a bunch of hooey.

    The best thing you can do for tendonitis is plain old rest.
