Muscle pain around the wrist joint opposite the thumb post injury. How can I heal it faster?

Hello, A bit over 2 weeks ago I punched a boxing bag hard and wrong. Since then I ve felt pain in the muscle. I ll try to describe the place I feel pain. If you hold your palm side up. Its around and below the wrist joint on the opposite side where the thumb is. Is there anyway to make it heal faster or is there a point where its safe to start putting stress on the wrist without further injuring it.

I think you have sustained a bad injury to hand. There is a slight chance that it may be a hair line fracture so get x ray. Healing will take time and even if there is no fracture then also soft tissue injury also causes pain for long time. I would suggest you to take Brufen tablet for pain relief. Also keep applying ice to the shin. It will be fine in two weeks.
