Dorsal Night Splint
What post-operative care do you recommend after open excision of dorsal wrist ganglion once 2-week splint is removed?
I had a dorsal wrist ganglion aspirated yesterday. The doc recommended splinting the wrist for 3 weeks which seems excessive. Should I do less than 3?
Wrist dorsal capsular sprain been 9 weeks was healing but pain got worse now kept it on splint for first 5 weeks but then took it off and used hand. Help?
Patience: It can take up to six months for dorsal wrist pain to resolve after a dorsal capsuloligamentous injury. If recurrent pain persists, or increases, see ur hand surgeon for repeat exam ; possible x-rays. Otherwise, use a removable splint as needed for support/protection; prn ice/heat ; nsaids. ...Read more

A splint will help reduce the damage. Otherwise you will continue to cause damage that can lead to replacement of fillings, crowns and other things. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
