Wrist Sprains

Wrist sprains are common injuries, especially in certain groups of people. Wrist sprains tend to occur after falls. Sporting activities are also common causes of wrist sprains i.e. football, basketball and rollerblading.

What are the symptoms of a wrist sprain ?

Some common symptoms of wrist sprain include:

  • Pain with movement of the wrist
  • Swelling around the wrist joint
  • Bruising or discoloration of the skin
  • Burning or tingling sensations around the wrist

There are other wrist problems which display similar symptoms to a sprain, including wrist tendonitis and a wrist fracture or scaphoid (small bone in the wrist joint) fracture. Your doctor will conduct an x-ray to ensure you have not broken the bones around the joint. In some cases a MRI can be helpful. This may be done if the diagnosis of Wrist sprains is unclear or if the symptoms do not resolve as expected.
