Sprain / Strain, Wrist (Mild)

A strain is an inflammation to the tendons that connect muscles to the bones and is typically caused by overuse or repetitive use. Tenderness, pain and mild swelling usually occur with a strain. If left untreated the strained tendons can start to pull away from the muscle with slight tearing progressing to tendinitis. The strained muscle area should be rested and allowed to heal. Compressive supports or braces help hold the muscles and tendons in proper position to allow healing to begin and help prevent further tearing. A mild wrist sprain is a slight stretching or tearing of a ligament group (versus a tendon as in a strain) in the wrist or hand. Minor pain and some swelling may occur with a mild sprain with no loss of function. A compressive support or brace is suggested for a mild sprain since it helps hold the joint in place to allow healing to begin and relieve pain.
