Unfortunately, there's not much that can be done without medical attention to treat fractures of the wrist. There's serious injuries, and if you think you have a broken bone in your wrist, you should absolutely seek immediate medical attention. If you're not sure if the pain is mild or moderate and the swelling is not too bad, it's appropriate to rest, apply some ice, and maybe take medication such as Tylenol and ibuprofen and see if the pain will resolve. If the pain is getting worse and if it doesn't get better within the first four to eight hours, it's absolutely essential to seek appropriate medical attention in an emergency room or an urgent care or call your primary care doctor to get attention as soon as possible.
