What is the best treatment for wrist pain?
Depending on the location, the severity of the pain, the location of injury and the age of the patients, various treatments are carried out for wrist pain. Necessary treatment for many ordinary conditions that form the root cause of wrist pain is to rest the joint and allow the acute inflammation to decline. Not all types of wrist pain require medical treatment. Applying ice and compressing the wrist with an elastic bandage will be sufficient if the injury is minor. Mild pain relievers can be taken to reduce the pain. If the pain persists, strong pain relievers as per doctor's prescription can be considered.
After a detailed evaluation in relation to the various factors that may cause wrist pain, you will be initially suggested special treatments for wrist injuries and tendon problems. If the pain is due to a broken bone in your wrist, then, to align the bone for healing, a cast or splint should be used to hold the fragments of the bone together during healing. For a sprained or strained wrist, reinforcement is used to protect the injured tendon or the ligament. Pain in wrists that is caused by the repetitive motions can also be healed using reinforcements.
