Wrist Sprains

Injuries resulting from the elongation or tearing of wrist ligaments are termed as wrist sprains. Typically, these injuries occur due to falls during routine activities or sports engagements. The severity of sprains varies, ranging from mild to severe, depending on the extent of ligament damage. Primary symptoms associated with wrist sprains comprise:

Swelling and pain in the wrist
Impaired wrist movement
Bruising around the wrist
Sensation of popping inside the wrist
Perception of warmth or feverishness in the wrist
Diagnosis of this condition involves a comprehensive assessment of your medical history and a physical examination of the wrist conducted by your healthcare provider. Additionally, imaging tests like X-rays, CT scans, and MRI may be employed to identify partial ligament tears.

Treatment modalities for encompass both surgical and non -surgical approaches. Non-surgical interventions entail wrist immobilization and the implementation of strengthening exercises once pain levels have diminished. Surgical treatment is reserved for cases where the ligament is entirely torn, necessitating repair.
