hello, if there is moderate pain and sweling ,, yes all she need is proper rest to hand , which helps to recover her faster . pop(plaster of paris ) application to the hand will helps to give proper immobility and the wrist and palm , and it needs to be applied for 3weeks , proper tretment now prevents joint stifness at the wrist joint in the long term and other complications. kindly follow as your doctor advised.
