    How long for a sprained wrist to be better for swinging club again  

    I have to suggest asking a Doctor this question.

    How did you sprain it -- were you playing golf?  

    Devin is right, Docs would know the proper advise.

    Got to agree with Devin on this one.  So much depends on the type of sprain and the severity of it.  Could be anywhere from one day of rest to several months.  Remember, Rory McIlroy did a job on his wrist, yet was still playing.  Tiger is taking a couple of weeks off to rest his elbow.  Bones and joints are difficult to lump into a simple answer.

    Well let's see. I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express this week.....

    My answer. Does it hurt when you go "like this?" Then don't do that and call your regular physician.....

    Seriously sir. We know lots of things. This ain't one of them.....

     I once took a month and a half off during summer due to wrist pain.

    Yeah I've had a few wrist sprains.  I've always seen my doc to make sure it's not worse than just a sprain.  After that I treat it until it doesn't seem to hurt and then I start some very light swinging to see if I have any twinges or feelings of pain.  If so I stop immediately.  If not, then I work my way slowly up over a few days (with some rest days in between to be safe) to longer clubs and harder swings.  A lot of the time I found that the biggest problem I had was trusting it to be fine even after the pain was gone.

    It should be fine tomorrow.

    Run down to your local Hammacher Schlemmer and buy one of these:  A Pain Relieving Neuromuscular Stimulator System....It won't tighten ligaments or stretched tendons, but sore muscles in the region will feel better!
