    Stop playing.

    Wrist problems usually occur because of improper hand positioning. Make sure your hands are always as straight as possible, with no wrist angle.

    This is the wrong forum for this question, by the way.
     
  3. I have a bad wrist after playing for so long. Well, its not so much as bad as annoying. If I leave my wrist in the same position long enough when I move it it cracks. It didnt do this before I played.

    Yeah, my wrists are f*ck*d! Years of playing bass and riding crotch-rockets has left them a bit fragile. I do what I can though -- sometimes I force myself through the pain. :(

    Well, Miscellaneous is the right place, but it was originally posted in the "Basses" forum.

    Just clearing it up for the more zealous readers...
