I have a client who has had carpal tunnel surgery (twice now). Recovery first time went pretty smoothly. This time not so smoothly (has some pain). She’s faithfully done all the rehab physio and exercises and is ready to get back to training. Any great ideas how to physically challenge her without hurting?
I am sorry this time is not so smooth for your client. Do you know what exercises she has been doing, with or without resistance, and if she is officially finished with rehabilitation? Does she have the doctors’ clearances for training?
How much pain and to what degree is she dealing with? It sounds like a sign for her to see the doctor, to make sure everything is healing properly.
You could have her do other exercises that do not use her wrists, in order to challenge her during the recovery.
I wish her luck.
