wrist fracture

When you have a sports-related orthopaedic injury, NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) may provide temporary pain relief. You should also consider limiting some activities to prevent reinjury, resting and applying ice, and seeking physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around the joint.

Other treatment includes the use of an orthopaedic brace or splint. In some case, internal fixation of fracture or ligament reconstruction may be recommended.
