What is a Wrist Sprain?

A wrist sprain is an injury to the ligaments of the wrist. There are many small ligaments connecting the small bones of the hand and wrist together. These ligaments can become easily sprained. A sprain can be a small tear in some of the ligament fibres or a complete rupture. Some of the causes of wrist sprains are:
  • Ligament stretch
  • Ligament compression
  • Wrist fracture with ligament involvement
  • Wrist dislocation
Minor wrist sprains will heal without intervention, but with physiotherapeutic intervention the recovery period will be quicker and there will be a reduction in the risk of re-injuring as the wrist will have been rehabilitated effectively.
