You have TWO practical options to heal this injury. Firstly, get some Arnica tincture or cream and massage that all over the damaged area of your hand and wrist. This will disperse bruising, cancel the pain and reduce the swelling - and will hasten repairs by a week or more. Ask at the Pharmacy or from a local Herbalist or Homeopath.

Secondly, you can go to the Pharmacy and get a tube of standard (NOT the HP grade) of Zostrix. Again, rub this deeply into the whole painful area - sparingly because this stuff gets "hot" if you use too much. Quite harmless, but it really stirs up the healing response and is MAGIC at removing pain. Don't get either of these products in your eyes, mouth or cuts in your hand because they will sting! Untreated, you are looking at anything up to a month for full relief....

Sprains generally take longer to heal than fractures do. Expect it to hurt for as little as a few weeks to as much as a few months.... if it is truly sprained.

are you speaking from experience cause that gave me a spark of hope . I am a thai kickboxer and i feel lost at sea right now . I waited 2 weeks for no pain and strength back to my hand . But after to rounds it reverted back . So should i be soft to it for a month you think from your experience ? It's my dorsal interossei for a fact but i am restless.

also no swelling , just a shock of pain down the top of my hand when i do a right cross and strength is about 45% in that hand for oping bottles as an example. and I had it x ray no breaks or fractures .

I am speaking from experience as I use to work in an emergency room and I did for a long time.

2 days. I sprained both of my wrists by doing some boss moves jumping off a swing but I landed wrong. It hurt but it was better in a few days.
