Wrist sprain happens when one or more ligaments are torn. Actually, when we fall or we slide, as a spontaneous reaction, We use our hand and wrist as a mean to brake our fall. In some cases, when our wrist is over twisted or under pressure, a ligament tear may occur. Most common sprained wrist symptoms are: pain, swelling, popping.
What wrist brace to use for my sprain?
- Grade 1: it is a mild wrist sprain. Treatment: It takes some rest with a soft compression wrist support, like this one.
- Grade 2: it is a moderate ligament tear. Treatment: stop all activities involving pressure on your wrist, apply some ice and wear wrist braces with medium level support, like this one for left hand, and this one for right one.
