How to wrap a wrist – best solicitors in Dulwich
Wrists are quite delicate and are also more likely to be injured when doing everything from typing to playing sports. In an accident you are likely to injure your wrists if you try to hold yourself up, or throw your hands out in front of you in a fall. Wrapping your wrists can help you to prevent injuries when playing sports or doing any kind of activity with your hands, and will also help to heal your injuries more quickly if you have sustained a mild wrist injury.
- Use an elastic bandage. This will give you the compression you need to support your wrist, without being so tight that it cuts off the blood flow to the area, which could cause further injury.
- Choose the right size. You are looking for a slimmer bandage for a wrist than you would for a foot or leg injury. A two inch width is likely to work best for you.
- Work out whether you need to minimise the motion of the wrist. If you have already injured the wrist and want to keep it still so that it can heal and will cause less pain, then you may want to completely immobilize the wrist or at least reduce the amount you are able to move it. To stop the wrist moving all together then you want to wrap the wrist firmly from the base of your fingers to your forearm. To reduce motion you should wrap from below the wrist, and then between the thumb and palm. The bandage should cross the palm at least twice in each direction to ensure that it is firm.
- Change the bandage regularly. Make sure that you remove it when you wash so that it does not become tighter or damaged. If you feel that it is losing its tightness then you will want to change it as well.
