  • Before you go to bed at night devote 10 minutes to icing your wrists. (A good way to do this is to fill a pitcher with ice and water and submerge your arm in it.)  
  • Stretch your wrists using stretches like the ones found here. Do these stretches at least a couple of times per day to keep your wrists mobile and limber.
