Wrist Sprains & Strains
Get to the Root of the Pain
A sprain is an injury to a ligament, which is a strong band of connective tissue that connects one bone to another.
A wrist sprain is a common injury, as there are many ligaments in the wrist that can be stretched or torn. This occurs when the wrist is bent forcefully, such as in a fall onto an outstretched hand. Typically, these falls are the result of athletic or recreational activities, where an individual breaks their fall by bracing the ground with their hands.
