Posted:Just recently, one of my wrists started clicking as I spin. I also just got over a bout of teninitis in my wrist...I want to know if anyone else has this problem? It doesn't seem to be harmful, just disturbing.

Posted:I do spin staff in winter (sorry this is in the poi forum but i didn't want to create the same topic under staff spinning!)

Yes, I've always tried to spin at least every other day, outside of term time (in term i can only manage twice a week) . Yeah I totally agree with you that spinning after not-spinning for a long period does do strange things to your joints.

I went to Kalahari in London briefly, and before the guys started spinning there, they were warming up as if they were about to go on a triathlon! Very amusing to watch, and I tried to copy them, and I guess there was method behind the madness ... they seemed perfectly healthy!

Posted:I get tendonitist in my right wrist from spinning.

However, over the last couple of months I've been really watching that wrist and where it's positioned in moves and transitions, and I found that I rotatate it too much inside my moves... kind of like overclocking it.

the more I work on that, the less my wrist hurts.

hope that helps smile

Posted:I had some wrist problems in the past whilst spinning, as mentioned a good warm up is always the best.

This past year saw that my left Carpel Scafoid was fractured in 3 places from an road traffic accident i had back in May, this saw me off work for 4 months... a good end to all poi and juggling .
It is only until now that my wrist is building up more strength, rather than jumping right back into the swing of things (mind the pun there) i have tried to use my hand in positions that would normally occur whilst spinning or juggling but there was still pain and discomfort.

This morning i tried a simple 3 ball mills mess with oranges as i was clearing the table after lunch, and for the first time no discomfort, maybe now having had a long gap i can pick up on my journey of poi and juggling.

Posted:Any one have any advice on LOCKED FINGERS? confused , i'm a metals finisher by trade these days (i clean and polish metal things for mega yatchs such as hand rails etc) i am to the understanding that it is the vibrations and nerves that give me this problem.
It is onlyevery morning i wake up with my hands in a clenched ball/fist. Its not painful to straighten them out, it was to start but now they dont hurt, it is just that they dont straighten with out me having to do it with the aid of some thing, once they are back in the normal position, they are fine again confused so therefore should not interfere with poi or juggling unless im trying to do it in my sleep. ubbrollsmile

any thoughts confused

makes no sence to me making a reply to a post 5 years ago confused

And if your comment is aimed at me as the "know it all".. then you don't know me at all... if there is a problem with my posting then use the "notify a moderator" button. ubbidea and notify them!

hug to you because by the sounds of it you obviously need some. wink

Posted:I have been diagnosed with repetitive strain injury which really makes spinning a difficulty. I have heard people say that if you have a chronic condition you should take up to 10g of omega-3 fish oil a day. Has anybody heard anything similar? I would be concerned about a mercury dosage and so would want to take a clean omega-3 source (see: clean omega-3 fish oil) but the cost of taking so much seems prohibitive so I am interested to know what others think.
