too much wrist?
recently, i had been experiencing some wrist pains or soreness in my right hand. this occurs after playing badminton and it really hurts when i'm on the computer. during badminton, i can play, smash do anything without feeling the discomfort but once after the game and when i'm on the computer, my wrist and my palm start hurting. my doctor said this was nothing that i should worry about.
i watched a video clip of myself and i was wondering if there can be anything such as using too much wrist and not enough arm. also, i put on a chinese patch that feels like it burns because of its healing effect.
anyone have any suggestions as to why this might happen?
here's a clip that i watched of myself over and over to see if i was doing anything wrong. i'm really worried about my wrist pain.

i usually don't warm up my wrists, maybe that might be the problem. are there any other ways to help prevent this and any other warmups besides just rotating the wrist?
for my computer, i do have keyboard and mouse rests that raise my palm above the table.
i tried to change my form today so i would use more arm than my wrist. i have considerably less power because i'm afraid i would hurt my wrist.

My suggestion is not to rest your wrists or hand on anything when typing (or using the mouse), even on a wrist pad. Wrist pads are designed to be used only when you are not typing. Also when your arms/hands get tired from being in the air - then it is time for a break.

I've the same problem but my pain occur during the games , which is frustrating . I've been doing weights exercise which might have caused too much stress to the waist. I'm still looking for way to strengthen my waist to eliminate this hindrance to a fun game. Will appreciate any suggestions .
