Non Surgical Treatment

Non Surgical Treatment

Your wrists allow you to have full movement of your hands. Within your wrist, you have ligaments that help provide stability in movement.

If you injure these ligaments, you may loose normal mobility and may also experience pain and swelling. Healthy wrists and hands are vital to an active lifestyle.

Step 2 Splinting & Medication

Your physician may give you a splint to keep you from flexing your wrist. Since flexing can make your symptoms worse, the splint will keep your wrist in a rigid, straight position. Your splint may be worn during the day and/or at night. Relieving the stress on your wrist will relieve swollen tissues.

At the same time, your physician may prescribe medications to aide in your recovery and ease your pain. Do not exceed the amount prescribed without first receiving approval from your physician. Exceeding the prescribed dosage is dangerous and can lead to numerous health hazards and even death.

Step 3 Cortisone Injections

Your physician may suggest cortisone injections to reduce inflammation in your wrist. Some patients may only require one injection, while others may need additional injections to relieve pain and inflammation.
