Pinpoint your pain.
The symptoms of broken wrists, and their severity, depend on the type of fracture experienced.General symptoms of broken wrists include:
- Pain (moderate to extreme)
- Decreased sensation and movement
- Complete bone displacement and deformity
In the most extreme cases, a fractured wrist may affect nerves and blood flow, resulting in extreme pain, a numb wrist and hand, and pale fingers. A wrist injury causing these symptoms should be considered an emergency and immediate medical care should be sought.
