Everyone recognizes it, you are exercising or are on the way to the bus and at that moment you stumble. You catch your body with the help of your hands and arms, after which you get up again. There does not seem to be much going on, but as soon as you sit at home on the couch in the evening you still feel that the wrists are still very active. Could it be that the wrist is broken, bruised or perhaps sprained?
There is talk of a sprain when the bands that are around the wrist joint are stretched. The straps ensure that the joint stays together. In case of a fall these can stretch so far that it might even tear. The wrist then feels painful and will swell.
The cause of a sprain is often a fall. The person tries to catch himself with the arms, after which the wrist makes a strange movement or catches the big force. This may cause the bands to stretch, causing a swelling and painful feeling in the wrist.
With a sprained wrist, it is important that the wrist is well cooled to prevent the swelling. This can be done by cooling with cold water or with ice. Then it is important to let the wrist rest well. This does not say anything about "not" moving. Make sure that the wrist gets enough rest, but move the wrist from time to time for good blood circulation.
To ensure sufficient rest in the wrist, ProBrace can recommend the following wrist braces, as much dynamic brace as possible:
Already recovered or almost recovered and slowly want to pick up the sport again? Then perhaps 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.
