Wrist Sprain Recovery Solutions

What is a wrist sprain?

A sprain is classified as an injury to a ligament. There are many ligaments in the wrist that can become overstretched or torn after the wrist is forcefully bent or twisted.

What causes a wrist sprain?

Damage to a wrist ligament usually occurs suddenly after a fall with an outstretched hand. 

What are the symptoms of a wrist sprain?

The symptoms of a wrist sprain will depend on the severity of the injury which are classified into three grade levels.

Grade I: A mild sprain occurred after the ligaments were overstretched but not torn. A grade I sprain will cause some pain and swelling in the joint.

 

Grade II: A moderate sprain occurred after partial tearing of the ligaments in the wrist. A grade II sprain will cause pain, swelling, and some loss of function of the wrist and hand.

 

Grade III: A severe sprain occurred after one or more of the wrist ligaments were completely torn. A grade III sprain will lead to severe pain, swelling, and loss of function in the wrist and hand until the ligaments have healed.

How will a wrist brace help me recover from a wrist sprain?

Most doctors will recommend a wrist brace while recovering from a sprain in order to provide stability to the joint and limit the range of motion during rehabilitation. BioSkin’s Premium Wrist Brace and Wrist Brace with Thumb Splint both provide compression to alleviate pain, and customizable stays for comfortable support while the joint heals.
