Wrist Sprains

.A wrist sprain is prain is an injury to a wrist ligament. Ligaments are strong bands of connective tissue that connect one bone to another.. There are many ligaments in the wrist that can be stretched or torn, resulting in a sprain. This occurs when the wrist is bent forcefully, such as in a fall onto an outstretched hand.
Cause
 

Wrist sprains are most often caused by a fall onto an outstretched hand. This might happen during everyday activities, but frequently occurs during sports and outdoor recreation.

Syndrome

* Pain at the time of the injury
* Persistent pain when you move your wrist
* Bruising or discoloration of the skin around the wrist
