Common Causes of Wrist Injury

Common Causes of Wrist Injury

Wrist injuries are a common occurrence in everyday life. They often occur when you fall or are in a car accident, but they can also be caused by repetitive motions that put stress on your wrists.

Wrist injuries are common, and they can cause a lot of pain.

The first thing to do if you're suffering with wrist pain is to make sure it's not something more serious and in need of immediate medical attention. If you cannot move your wrist at all, or if there is any sudden swelling or sign of infection, please see a doctor immediately.

But if your wrist pain isn't severe, then chiropractic or physioherapy may be what you need to get back into the swing of things. Chiropractors and physiotherapists at Yellow Gazebo will evaluate your injury and give you exercises that target the muscles and joints in your wrists. They may also recommend using a brace or splint for extra support during recovery. And you can also likely find relief from wrist pain by seeing one of our osteopaths or acupuncturists, who are also adept at helping all sorts of injuries.

What are some common causes of wrist injury?

Falls: Falls account for about half of all broken bones in adults older than 65 years old. When you have a fall, it's important to check for any fractures or sprains so that they can be treated right away.

Sports injuries: Sports injuries are common among athletes of all ages but especially among children because their bodies aren't fully developed yet and they don't always know how to protect themselves during playtime activities like basketball games or soccer matches against other kids at school."

Wrist injuries are common in the workplace and at home. The most common causes of wrist injuries include repetitive motion, such as typing on a keyboard or using a mouse or computer trackpad.

Common symptoms of a wrist injury include pain in the wrist, tenderness when putting pressure on the wrist and pain when moving your fingers.

How can you prevent wrist pain?

Once you’ve seen one of our therapists and have had your pain relieved, you’ll want to follow their advice on how to prevent the pain from coming back. This could involve doing some exercises regularly, it could involve wearing a brace when doing repetitive movements, or it could involve a combination of different efforts. Please take note: the older you get the harder it may be to prevent wrist pain if you continue to do the same things. But you can find lasting releif if you’re willing to get a little manual therapy, and if you’re maybe willing to make some tweaks to your lifestyle.
