Swollen Wrist Hurting the Squad? 3 Tips To Cheer About!

Swollen Wrist

A swollen wrist is one of the most common injuries suffered by cheerleaders. Cheerleaders are putting pressure on their wrist. Unfortunately, once the wrist is hurt, it can take a long time to heal. In fact, a swollen wrist can become a long nagging injury that never seems to go away.

Tip #1 – Rest

  • When you injure your wrist, the key to letting it heal is to rest the area. You must stop using the injured area.
  • This is very hard with a swollen wrist because we use our wrists so much.
  • Another problem is that the wrist will feel better before it is actually healed. You will think it is ok to get back out there. If you do this too soon, you will reinjure it.

Tipe #2 – Ice

  • There is good news for your swollen wrist. There are not many parts to the wrist that can be injured.
  • With ice, you can reduce the swelling. This will help you take care of the problem.
  • Just remember to take caution when you return to the cheer squad. Reduced swelling doesn’t mean you are completely healed. There is the risk of hurting your wrist again.

Tip #3 – Use Caution

  • When you do decide to return to the squad, you need to take precaution.
  • You will need to wrap your wrist with an ace bandage. This bandage will give your wrist some extra protection. This will guard against the trauma that can be caused normal cheer activities.
  • Another thing you can do is to work your way back slowly. Try not to do too much too soon.
  • If you keep your wrist wrapped in an ace bandage, and do not do too much too soon, you should be back to normal in no time.
  • If you are stubborn, then you are going to continue to experience pain. You will most likely reach a point where you decide that sitting out is better than dealing with the pain.

If you ever suffer from a swollen wrist, you will see that the pain can be terrible. If you take some easy-to-follow steps, you can be back on the squad in no time. Now that is something to cheer about!
