Acute injuries are caused by a sudden injury to a certain part of the body, meaning they are often caused while playing sports. The most common types of acute injuries of the wrist are sprains, strains and contusions and affect the ligaments, muscles and tendons in the wrist and hand. Acute wrist injuries can vary significantly in severity and as such, take differing amounts of time to heal.
Supports and braces are essential pieces of equipment when it comes to assisting the healing process. Not only does a wrist supports for acute injuries help to support the limb, but also provides compression and warmth to the damaged area. The application of heat encourages healing while the compression helps to limit the amount of swelling that will take place. Wearing a wrist brace is an ideal way to get you back to full functionality as quickly as possible.
