I know this topic has come up hundreds of times because I searched the archives, but I have a slightly different twist on it =)
For about two years I've had pain in my right wrist (it only happens every couple of months, very irregular). Right now it's happening again - I only have pain in the thumb joint. It seems to happen only when I put pressure on the bow, and only in the upper ½-1/3 of the bow. My teacher has told me to stop practicing whenever I experience pain, and sometimes when I come back to it a couple of hours later, my wrist feels absolutely normal. Has anyone had this kind of problem? If so, I need some simple stretches that might help.
Also, how important is it that I see a specialist? As far as I know there isn’t one in the country. Which would mean I’d have to travel, perhaps to Israel, to see one. Advice???
