Wrist sprains are common injuries that are often the result of a fall onto an outstretched hand. While other accidents and impacts can cause a sprained wrist, it is often the result of a forward or backward bend. Wrist pain that comes on gradually is usually from repetitive strain injury (RSI), such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
A broken wrist involves a break or fracture in the wrist end of the ulna forearm bones, radius bones or any of the small carpal bones located in the wrist. It is extremely common in falls or sports and is a common reason someone will present with wrist pain to one of our chiropractors or physiotherapists in Balmain and Dee Why.
Wrist sprains are common injuries that are often the result of a fall onto an outstretched hand. Swelling, tenderness and pain are symptoms involved with a scaphoid fracture. While pain may reduce after the initial injury, challenges picking up and gripping things will still occur without proper treatment.
A sprained thumb is the result of the thumb being bent in a direction outside of its usual range of movement. This causes damage to the bottom of the thumbs where the ligaments are supporting the joint. It is important to see a chiropractor or physiotherapist after this injury to ensure a prompt diagnosis is made and a treatment strategy is given.
A broken finger is a common break or fracture in one of the three bones that make up the fingers called phalange bones. There are many causes of a broken finger, most of which involve it being crushed in between objects or bent by force, impact or collision. While finger breaks and fractures may be common, it is advised that they are treated properly to avoid further injuries in the future.
