Doctor :   please proceed
User :   I injured my wrist about 4 years ago, and since then I've had a lot of problems with it, I had it x rayed a while back, but they didn't find anything, the doctor told me it was normal, but how can it be normal if I cannot put pressure on it?
Doctor :  
x ray can detect changes in the bone
User :   its now starting to affect my work
Doctor :  
minor ligamental injury or sprain cannot be detected by xray'
User :   it comes and goes, but Its been hurting quite a lot recently, and aches constantly
Doctor :   restriction of the movement of wrist by creepe bandage ..will help u
User :   I have supports I use from time to time
Doctor :  
i know any stress on the wrist joint would have exagerated the pain
User :   but can anything be done to have a more perminant affect
User :   I cannot wear my support at work
Doctor :   ligamental injury takes hell lot of time to recover
Doctor :  
and to be as normal as before
Doctor :  
u can try physiotherapy
Doctor :  
it will enhance the healing process
User :   can I do anything like that at home, as I cannot afford physiotherapy
Doctor :   just go visit physiotherapist once and learn the minor exercise which they will ask u to do....later u can do it on ur own

Doctor :  
cos u should do them properly
User :   okay
Doctor :  
then only u can get relief
User :   thank you
