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 also connect the bones of your hand to the bones of your forearm. JOI Rehab has Occupational Therapy or Hand Therapy at several locations in Jacksonville. JOI has the most certified hand therapists (CHT’s) in the region!
