The Wrist Widget And How It Is Solving My Pain

There I was headed up as a beginner towards one of Durango's most challenging trail rides on a dirt bike. Me and my trusty Yamaha 250 WR. I looked great. Decked out in Yamaha racing blue, one might've thought I was sponsored by team Aquafina and Yamaha - yeah, that much blue! When all of a sudden, I think to myself... Hey, you're not sponsored jackass! I was headed down a particularly steep part of the trail and figured I should turn around. So, I stop the bike, take a deep breath and begin the frustratingly hard bike turn-around process... CRAP! As I was lifting the bike and depressing the front brake, I hear a *POP*. Damn, what the hell was that... The pain wasn't sharp, but noticeable and kind of dull. I was able to ride out, but knew something was wrong.

When I got back to camp, my arm felt worse. My lovely wife consoled me as only she can. No, Walker, you don't have a tumor and your bone isn't broken, but go ahead an bother Dr. Youssef (SpineColorado) and ask him about it on a Saturday evening. So I iced it at camp and drank beer. The next morning my arm was sore, but not sore enough that I couldn't do a short ride up to the top of Jones Creek and back (hey, when you're dealing with an addict you get addict-like behaviors, which are typically classified as STUPID). So the rest of the week I'm dealing with this messed up wrist...

I can't climb, I can ride, but I want to climb - my life sucks! For someone like me, being injured is not good! I love getting outside and charging! But, I realize that I've got many more days of hucking ahead of me. I start researching remedys. First, ChiropracticDurango takes a "crack" at it. Dr. Siggins is the man! He adjusted just about every part of my body so more than my wrist felt better... But I needed more and wanted something that brought more stability to my wrist, and life.

So there I was researching "weird ulna wrist tears/injuries" and stuff like that when all of a sudden I ended up on this Badminton injury group... Yeah, of all the places right! After reading a few posts I discovered this person responding with really good ideas for treatment. I soon discovered that she not only had ideas, but a solution too! That's when I discovered the WristWidget.
The WristWidget is designed to treat your ulnar sided wrist pain due to your TFCC tear.  It has been researched and now used on over 100,000 patients world wide.  It is made with the highest quality material.  The velcro closure mechanism does not interfere with wrist motion or weaken with use.  It holds the wrist securely in place without irritation to the skin or wrist joint.  It is made from non elastic material which molds comfortably around the wrist.  There is no compression to the ulna head, a key component to comfortable use. This is not like any other brace on the market.

I'm not going to lie here... ALL OF THIS IS TOTALLY TRUE!!!

Thank you to the Wrist Widget team! My shredding time has basically not stopped since my injury!
