Wrist pain on twisting
My right hand wrist has been paining on twisting it in a clockwise direction. The pain occurs just below the bone protrusion on the wrist. The pain is excruciating especially when I have to turn door knobs in the house. My question - what kind of splint or cast would work towards fixing this wrist in a matter of few weeks??

Well you have not mentioned whether you had a fall or injury recently of some sort Please do mention that and if there is no injury then there is a condition called Tendinitis for which you need to see Orthopaedic doctor in the clinic for him to judge your condition and prescribe a brace and some medicines if required he may also prescribe physiotherapy if required However if you have injury only then a plaster cast of some sort may be required but that can only be decides after getting an x-ray

Your symptoms are suggestive of tendinitis and more likely to be lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow. Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overloaded, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. The cause is repeated contraction of the forearm muscles that you use to straighten and raise your hand and wrist. The repeated motions and stress to the tissue may result in a series of tiny tears in the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the bony prominence at the outside of your elbow. Tennis elbow often gets better on its own. These following steps may help: - Rest your hand and avoid making too many repetitive actions - Apply ice or a cold pack for 15 minutes three to four times a day. - Make sure that you are using proper technique for your activities and avoiding repetitive wrist motions. - To reduce stiffness and increase flexibility you can do free range motion exercises three to five times a day. - You can undergo physiotherapy which will help relax the muscles and strengthen the muscles. If the condition persists or worsens visit the orthopedician at the earliest
