Wrestlers Cauliflower Ear Prevention And Treatment
How To Prevent Or Treat Wrestler Ear Injuries
We know wrestling to be a severe injury-type sport. Of course, we have some habitual classed injuries but they’re mostly sharp injuries to the shoulders, knees, and ankles.
Now maybe underrated, but commonly seen are ear injuries. The type we’re referring to and seeing are the cauliflower ears on wrestlers.
Most of the time we see they’re scarred down and mangled and looking just worn out. What we’re noticing is that if we can catch these injuries in their early stages, we can restore the natural shape of the ear.
Most gyms really don’t have a tool that is practical and easy to apply and that could be used in their wrestling rooms or in clinics.
We were exposed to EarSplintz and became curious about the product. We decided to investigate it and it turns out it’s a phenomenal product for the general public to be able to use.
You don’t have to be a medical professional to use it and you don’t have to be a surgeon or a physician to either.
It comes with very detailed directions. Very easy to follow directions. Being able to apply it early for the young wrestlers really allows the athletes to keep the shape of their ears better.
Especially if they’re not interested in wearing headgear and protecting the ear canal. It’s as simple as trying to sustain the wrestler’s career when it comes to ear injuries.
It’s a great product for parents to be able to really use at home without having to feel intimidated by a medical product or things of that nature, or finding a physician to patch up their ear or sew up their ear.
It’s a very efficient non-invasive way to apply steady compression. The custom mold frames that it comes with make it super easy to follow and super easy to apply.
And when you apply it for the first and second time, it becomes second nature for you.
For overseas traveling, you can take EarSplintz with you. There’s no need to worry about having specific materials, you must travel with your kits and use them whenever you need them.
Applying EarSplintz directly after getting the cauliflower ear drained really decreases the amount of fluid that comes back into the ear. It should be worn consistently for about a week.
During this time you can still train and still work out.
And you wear the EarSplintz on when you’re not training. During the process of applying it, you’re going to see a decrease in swelling in the affected ear.
The comfort of the consistent soft pressure makes a big difference for the athlete and conformity.
We think it’s important for young wrestlers, adolescents, middle school athletes, and high school athletes, to protect their ears.
And it’s more so primarily helps in just saving time from missing training because the ears are really tender when you have all that pressure from fluid inflammation within your ear.
