Wrist Sprain

By Drew Heideman, PT, ATC

What is a Wrist Sprain?

When your wrist is bent too far, this can cause a wrist sprain, or injury to the bands of tissue called ligaments. Ligaments connect the bones of your hand to each other and are often injured in a fall.  They also connect the bones of your hand to the bones of your forearm.

Therefore, if you have fallen down on your wrist, it is important to be properly evaluated.  You need to know the difference between a wrist fracture and a wrist sprain.  Treatment of both of these conditions is quite different.  Often these injuries occur with a fall at home or during sports like tennis or basketball.
