A broken wrist is a painful affair. Even a suspected break causes a great deal of discomfort. After applying ice, the next step should be providing the limb with support and protection. Not only does this prevent accidental knocks from jarring the entire arm, but encourages the bones to knit back together in the correct way. Supporting and protecting the bones reduces the chance of complications arising during the healing process and therefore encourages a quicker recovery.
Wrist supports for broken wrists are an ideal option. They offer the same level of support and protection as a conventional cast, but are far lighter and more practical for everyday use. A wrist support can be easily removed as well, making it easier to wash both the support and the wrist itself during the recovery process.
There are a wide range of wrist supports for broken wrists available from Health and Care. This allows you to target the location of the break to ensure you are providing the right type of support required. Even if a break is only suspected, supporting the wrist stops complications arising due to the wrist moving and keeps the arm immobilised. Take a look at the range of supports and wrist braces for broken wrists and find the one that is best suited for your needs.
