Scaphoid Fracture

I fractured the scaphoid in my right wrist in April, the cast came off the end of July & I immediately started physical therapy.

The therapist just put me on hold from PT due to a lot of swelling & pain immediately following any kind of exercises or movement of the wrist, especially with extension. Flexion doesn't really bother me much.

The therapist made a splint to limit the extension but it's uncomfortable & has several pressure points on it. Can you give me any advice as to what type of splint or brace I could get to limit extension that wouldn't be so uncomfortable or hurtful?

The SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is formulated with a medical grade mineral oil (USP) which gradually dissipates onto the skin to help reduce scar tissue after carpal tunnel surgery and to protect sensitive scar tissue against friction, abrasion, and pressure.
