What is a wrist sprain?
A wrist sprain is a common injury that can occur when you fall or twist your wrist in an awkward way. It stretches or tears the ligaments in your wrist, which are the tough bands of tissue that connect your bones to each other. A wrist sprain can range from mild to severe, depending on how much damage there is to the ligaments. Treatment usually involves rest, ice, and pain relievers. In severe cases, you may need a splint or surgery.
What are the symptoms of a wrist sprain?
A wrist sprain is a very common soft tissue injury that occurs when the ligaments are overstretched or torn. Symptoms of a wrist sprain can include swelling, pain and difficulty moving the wrist joint. More severe sprains will usually cause bruising, decreased grip strength and potential weakening of the muscles.
What are the treatments for a wrist sprain?
Treating a wrist sprain depends on the intensity of the injury, however chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy exercises and massage therapy are all effective treatments. A chiropractor can provide targeted manipulations to help improve mobility and reduce pain in the joints and muscles. Physiotherapy involves strengthening exercises to help support the wrist and decrease strain on connecting ligaments and tendons. Massage therapy is beneficial for reducing inflammation and promoting healing, as it helps stimulate circulation around the joint, which carries away any excess fluid or swelling. Ultimately, each patient should consult with their doctor to determine an appropriate treatment that best fits their needs.
