Chiropractic Care

Wrist Pain

Wrist pain is a very common injury following a car accident. Because your hands are on the steering wheel, it is natural to use your hands to brace your body upon impact from a car accident – and as a result, the wrist bears the brunt of the majority of force.

Wrist Pain

Wrist pain can show up immediately, or not for a few hours or days. Injuries from collision or other trauma must be examined and evaluated immediately.

Signs of wrist injury include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Numbness
  • Inability to straighten or flex the wrist

If you are experiencing any discomfort in your wrist following a car accident, or other traumatic event, you should contact a health care professional as soon as possible. The sooner an injury is identified and treated, the quicker your injury will heal. Putting it off could increase the likelihood of worsening your condition and prolonging your pain.

    Wrist injuries can include:

    • Strains and/or Sprains: Ligaments that connect the bones in the wrist can be pulled, or even torn. When you experience trauma to your wrist, the ligaments can be pulled but not torn, partially torn, or completely torn, which requires surgery to mend.
    • Fractures: There are 13 bones in the wrist. When the wrist experiences trauma, especially like the blunt force from a car accident, bones can be partially or completely broken.
    • Tendonitis: Tendons attach muscles to bones. Injury causes the tendons to swell, causing pain around the wrist joints.
