For the past month, I noticed that I developed about a 1/2 inch size lump on my left inner wrist. I suspected it was a cyst, but after seeing the hand surgeon I was told that I have a torn Flexor carpi radialis (FCR).
The doctor gave two options:
- 8 weeks in splint or
- 8 weeks in cast
I am pretty active with cardio (running, plyo) and weights but I am trying to determine the best option. No matter the choice I make, I want to still work out.
What are my options with this type of injury? Are there any strength training, cardio choices with this type of wrist injury?
Just as a side note, any thoughts on cast or splint?
