How can you treat a bruised wrist?

A bruised wrist is best treated by giving it enough rest to recover naturally. In addition, an ice treatment ensures less swelling and numbs the pain. Rub ice on the area for about 10 minutes at a time. Never hold ice directly against your skin but place it on a dry towel, for example, to prevent frostbite. To avoid making the wrong movements during the rest period, it is wise to wear a brace. A brace helps to keep the wrist in the right position so that you can also do other things more easily. In addition, it is also an option to tap into your wrist.
