First, try to elevate your wrist above your heart. Swelling can exacerbate your pain. You may try to ice your wrist. If the pain seems to be getting worse, your cast or splint may be too tight. Please call the office to be evaluated. If you need emergency treatment, please go to your nearest emergency department.
