Hello there, i Can understand your concern for him. due to overuse of the area, there can be inflammation in the tissues which needs to reduce in order to get relief from pain, kindly wear the brace as suggested by the orthopedician and you can take a tablet diclofenac 50mg twice a day after food. you can take even upto thrice a day if pain is more. next time, exercise properly. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain

Hello.. Well please do put that wrist brace...even though there is no bony damage am sure he must have injured tendons and ligaments...so that will lead to pain...if he wears the brace gradually all signs of inflammation will come down....please consult an orthopaedician...he can take analgesics if pain not bearable..thank you
