Everyone recognizes it, you are exercising or are on the way to the bus and at that moment you trip. You catch your body with the help of your hands and arms, after which you get up again. There doesn't seem to be much going on, but as soon as you sit on the couch at home you feel the wrists still hurt. Could the wrist be broken, bruised, or perhaps sprained?
It is said to be a sprain when the bands around the wrist joint are stretched. The straps keep the joint together. In the event of a fall, these can stretch to such an extent that it may even crack. The wrist feels painful after this and will swell.
The cause of a sprain is often with a fall. The person tries to catch himself with the arms after which the wrist makes a strange movement or has to absorb the great force. This may cause the bands to stretch, causing a swelling and painful sensation in the wrist.

With a sprained wrist, it is important that the wrist is properly cooled to prevent swelling. This can be done by cooling with cold water or ice. After that it is important to rest the wrist properly. In addition, this says nothing about “not” moving. Make sure the wrist gets enough rest, but move the wrist every now and then for good blood flow.
To maintain sufficient rest in the wrist, ProBrace can recommend the following wrist braces, as much dynamic brace as possible:
Are you completely recovered or almost recovered and want to slowly pick up the sport again? Then some extra support of the wrist may be advisable. The brace provides extra stability in the wrist joint and yet with as much freedom of movement as possible.
