Physical Therapy For Wrist Injuries

Your wrist:  it’s one of those places on your body that you don’t realize how much you need it and how much you use it until it gets injured.  It seems like everything is affected:  showering, opening doors, writing…. And yes, using your mobile phone.  You can’t even scroll or hold your phone properly when you’ve injured your wrist!

Wrist Injuries

Here at Physical Therapy Now, we see wrist injuries that have occurred in all kinds of different ways.  The wrists are at a high risk of injuries because of the natural reaction we have to put our hands out in front of us as a means of protection.  This is especially true when it comes to slip and fall accidents and car accidents.  The victim knows an impact is coming, so the instinctive action of putting the hands out to protect the face or body or to “break” the fall happens, and the wrists often absorb the brunt of the force.  When that force is too much, the wrist(s) can be strained, sprained, ligaments/tendons can be torn, the wrist can be broken, or any other injury can occur.

No matter what happens, it hurts, and the injuries can be permanent if not properly treated.

Common Causes of Wrist Pain

In addition to slip and fall injuries and car accidents, there are many other reasons one might experience wrist pain.  According to medicalnewstoday.com, other causes of wrist pain can include:

The list above may or may not be your diagnosis, so it’s important that you see a medical profession to determine a course of treatment.  This is especially the case if you were injured in an accident, such as a vehicle collision, a slip and fall, or in a sporting accident.

Physical Therapy For Wrist Injuries

You don’t have to continue suffering from wrist pain.  Whether it’s a small nagging pain or something that shapes the way you move about on a day to day basis, there is help!  You don’t have to simply ‘deal with it’ or use pain relievers to make the wrist pain go away temporarily.

Physical therapy is a great option for people just like you suffering from wrist pain.  If you have not already received a diagnosis, a physical therapy appointment can pinpoint the source of the pain, and help to identify what is causing your discomfort.  If you have a diagnosis, physical therapy appointments play a key role in your healing and recovery.
