Best Wrap for Sprained Wrist Treatment
When it comes to how to treat a sprained wrist, most mild to moderate sprains or strains will heal on their own. But there are steps one can take to speed along the process and ease one’s discomfort.
One of these involves wearing a wrist sprain brace that protects against further injury via flexible support. This brace for wrist sprain treatment also provides compression that reduces painful inflammation and speeds along healing.
This orthotic treatment for sprained wrist or other hand/wrist injuries is composed of premium-grade neoprene. This material holds in heat, providing soothing warmth for treating a sprained wrist. This material is also soft against the skin, flexible and free of latex.
The sprained wrist splint leaves the thumb, fingers and the palm free of restriction. It also covers no more of the forearm than necessary.
The streamlined wrist brace for sprains or strains is easy to apply thanks to its wrap-around design and contact closure.
Plus there is no need to mess with sizing. The universal wrist sprain bandage fits wrist circumferences up to 9 inches. It also works for either the right or left hand.
This treatment for a sprained wrist can also help with wrist strains and various wrist tendonitis injuries. And as previously mentioned, the wrist strain brace can also be used for athletic protection during high-risk activities like skateboarding, basketball, gymnastics or snow skiing.
How to Treat a Sprained or Strained Wrist
A fall onto an outstretched hand can sprain or strain the soft tissues of one’s wrist, causing a number of unpleasant symptoms including:
- Feverish feeling to the skin around the wrist
- Popping/tearing sensation
How to treat a sprained wrist or a strained wrist will depend upon the severity of the injury. Conservative methods are usually sufficient for treating sprained wrists when they are moderate or mild, meaning they involve an overstretched or partially torn ligament.
In such cases, treatment for a sprained wrist or a strained wrist will involve following the steps of RICE—rest, ice, compress and elevate the wrist. Doing so helps protect against further damage and it reduces painful inflammation. This ice and heat wrist therapy wrap with two gel packs can help with the ice component of treatment for wrist sprain or strain injuries.
Anti-inflammatory pain relievers can also help treat a sprained or strained wrist by easing pain and swelling.
Wrist wraps for sprains can help with both the rest and compression element of RICE. The lightweight sprained wrist bandage supports the joint and it applies targeted compression to one’s sore wrist.
Wearing a sprained hand brace for a long period of time can increase stiffness and cause one’s muscles to weaken. This particular wrist sprain wrap leaves the palm, fingers and thumb free, helping to minimize the risk of this occurring. Regardless, one should follow a doctor’s instructions for how to treat a wrist sprain or strain when it comes to brace usage.
In some cases, moderate wrist sprain treatment will involve wearing an immobilizing wrist brace for a brief period. As one gets back to activity, this more flexible bandage for sprained wrist care can be used as a transitional brace after a period of immobilization. Physical therapy may also be part of treatment for a moderate wrist sprain to restore strength and range of motion to one’s wrist.
In some cases, athletes opt to wear a sprained wrist wrap for an added layer of protection, particularly if one is involved in high-risk activities for a sprain such as skating, snowboarding, baseball or diving. The flexible fit of this sprained wrist support wrap makes it well suited for such use.
Treatment of a sprained wrist where a ligament is fully torn often involves surgery to reattach the ligament to the bone.
Afterward, one will likely need to wear a post-op wrist brace to limit motion of one’s wrist so that healing can occur. Eventually, one will undergo physical therapy to restore the wrist to its pre-injury level of function.
