# I sprained my left wrist playing hockey Thursday night, my chord hand, and couldn't play the mando that night. #The doc took pictures and told me it probably wasn't fractured and that I should Ice, elevate, Ibuprofanate and rest it. #He left it open to me to "see how it feels" as to when I can strum again. #I want to play now and cowboy through the pain, but I know that's a bad thing. #I am trying to let the pain be my guide as to what not to do, but seeing those strings i am sooo tempted! #Has anyone ever gone back too early and regretted it? #
#This site had some good info: http://musicianshealth.com/musculoskeletaldisorders.htm
but I'm looking for some personal experiences, any info would be helpful.
