We often take the movement that our wrists give us for granted but when you think about it without the use of our wrists we wouldn't be able to move our hands, so if you injured your wrist it could potentially cause you a lot of problems.
Your wrist is one of the easiest places to damage, especially when involved in an accident. One of the reasons for this is because it is a natural reaction to protect ourselves, especially our head, using our arms, wrist and hands; so in the process your wrist is going to take the most of the impact.
Some of the damage that could occur to your wrist includes sprains, dislocations and broken/fractured bones as well as torn ligaments. Any of these injuries could cause instant, severe pain and tenderness with swelling, lack of movement and discolouration; it could even result in permanent damage such as deformity. If symptoms such as these do occur it is important that you seek medical attention and the wrist should be immobilised and have ice applied if possible as a means to reduce the swelling and overall injury.
