Hello there if its only pain at the wrist then he needs 2 week rest with wrist immobiliser band...during this time movements of wrist should be minimal... also application of topical diclofinac based gel twice a day for 5 days would bring relief....however remember not to overexert the wrist.

Regards & take care.
