Gymnasts for years have struggled to find relief for their wrist pain during a normal day at practice. This research study focuses on female adolescent athletes who have acute pain in their wrists ranging from mild to moderate pain. Increasing range of motion in the wrist along with increasing grip strength has shown to decrease overall wrist pain in acute scaphoid lunate ligament tears. The study will put gymnast through a 12-week intervention focusing strengthening grip strength and range of motion. The study hypothesizes that by improving both range of motions and grip strength will alleviate pain in female adolescent gymnast.
