Injuries..... most times they are preventable but if you're a weekend warrior like myself sometimes freak stuff just happens. Being a former collegiate football player I try to extend my career as long as I can, and currently this means playing in a local coed flag football league (it's way more intense than it sounds). Last week during a game I caught a ball and was tripped up and landed awkwardly on my wrist. At the time I thought nothing of it, I came out for a few plays, taped it up and went right back in the game. As I woke up the next morning and could not move my hand, I realized that a Dr's visit was in my near future. That afternoon I went to an Orthopedic urgent care center for X-rays, turns out I had fractured a bone in my wrist. Nothing too crazy but enough that it needs to be immobilized in a brace for the next few weeks, which also means no lifting, pushing, carrying...... even holding a coffee mug with that hand is a challenge right now.
