I was skiing last week and fell on friday (3 days ago) and hurt my wrist. I had it x-rayed today and they could not see any fracture and said it was a bad sprain.
I have been given a splint with a metal strip on the side and velcro to hold it on, but have not been told how long i should wear it for. The nurse said it could take 6 weeks to heal so does this mean i have to continue wearing the splint for this length of time? (i am taking it out and moving it every so often and doing some exercises i was given)
If not can anyone give me advice on how long i should wear it.
