Lately I have been experiencing pain in my left palm and wrist. It makes down dog painful and sometimes impossible. I tried Gripitz last night in my yoga class so that I could practice, but I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience? Can anyone suggest other modifications or exercises to help relieve the pain?

Thank you Julie. Yes, there is an entire wrist modification series for using props during asana practices to eliminate wrist pain.

I suffer from the same wrist pain. I have very skinny wrists but I am tall. This puts a ton of stress on my joints in downward dog and several other poses. I find that it hurts more in the beginning when I am "cold". I started doing some wrist stretches like the ones found here: https://breakingmuscle.com/yoga/3-stretches-to-help-achy-wrists-and-prevent-carpal-tunnel

I think it is helping so far.

Thank You BreeGee. This is good information. However, pulling the fingers back in the last exercise is a physical therapy nightmare. If you pull back too far you can snap a tendon or break a finger. Therefore, the last exercise should be omitted.

I think the best way for healing the wrists is rest. The forearms on blocks makes sense in all fours.
