Childhood injuries are a common occurrence despite how many precautionary measures might be taken; at some point a scratch or sprain will transpire. A sprained wrist in children is a relatively common injury to those involved in sports, but also in simple activities such as riding a bike or tripping while running. Immediately following an injury, ice should be applied to the hurt wrist to reduce and prevent further swelling. If the pain is severe or the inflammation persists, medical attention should be sought immediately to ensure no bones have been broken or fractures occurred, also to receive the proper treatment.
There are ways of avoiding injury to the wrists and forearms when falling, and you can teach these to your children to deflect more serious damages. One such method is to tuck your arms into your body and roll upon falling so that the impact is absorbed throughout your mass instead of just one limb. Protective gear should also be worn at all times in sports, especially rollerblading or skateboarding, to prevent extensive injuries.
A wrist injury can happen to adults also and the Brace Shop sells Adult Wrist Braces for them, but children need special care for those growing bones and muscles.
