Similarly, can you sleep with an Ace bandage on?
It also provides compression and heat retention, so we recommend it for daytime use only and not for wearing while sleeping. However, depending on your injury and/or other health concerns, your doctor may recommend that you wear it for shorter periods or for longer periods.
Furthermore, should you wrap a sprained ankle overnight? So go ahead and wrap a mild strain or sprain of your arm or leg with an elastic bandage to help reduce swelling. But once swelling subsides, unwrap. You can also minimize swelling throughout the day by elevating the limb. Overnight, if you can, prop a sprained ankle on something such as a pillow.
Just so, how long can you leave a compression bandage on?
A compression bandage may help most to prevent swelling in the first few days after your injury. You can wear it longer than that, as long as it doesn't make your pain worse.
Can you sleep with an Ace bandage on your wrist?
Having your wrist wrapped comfortably with an Ace wrap is safe. If you diagnosed your “sprained” wrist and immediately wrapped it without icing it first it will swell under the wrap. You won't sleep much since the pain will keep you awake.
