Guide Overview

A brief summary of what you'll find inside our treatment guide.


Wrist Sprains involve damage to the connective tissue and ligaments that stabilise the joints of the hand and wrist.

Causes (Aetiology)

Wrist Sprains are nearly always traumatic in origin and caused by the joint being stretched beyond its normal range of movement. The most common wrist sprains are called ‘FOOSH’ injuries (fall on an outstretched hand).

Signs and symptoms

Wrist Sprains often accompany fractures so you should seek medical advice and have an x-ray before commencing rehabilitation.

Symptoms include:

  • Immediate pain on and around the injury site

  • Redness, swelling and bruising

  • Loss of grip strength and an inability to move the hand, wrist and fingers

  • Pulsatile throbbing, numbness or pins and needles into the fingers


In most cases, Wrist Sprains are not serious. However, they can result in stiffness, reduced mobility and secondary problems which develop after the injury has healed.

If left untreated scar tissue and adhesions form around the injury site which increases the likelihood of re-injury.

Acute phase

Pain always causes a protective guarding in the tissues which shortens the muscles and hampers rehabilitation.

Our treatment guide provides expert advice on how to reduce pain and inflammation and create the right conditions to accelerate the healing process.

Post-acute phase

Post-acute phase rehabilitation involves the staged introduction of isometric, concentric and eccentric stretches, scar tissue removal, and proprioceptive exercises to strengthen the connective tissues to achieve a full range of movement and prevent re-injury.


Wrist Sprains respond well to self-treatment and conservative care. The treatment guide provides comprehensive tips and advice to achieve a full recovery in the shortest possible time.


If you follow the treatment guide correctly and are diligent with the rehabilitation programme, then complications are unlikely.

Without correct rehabilitation, there may be residual stiffness and reduced range of movement.

Regular stretching and correct warm-up before sports or exercise are some of the techniques contained in our clinically proven treatment guide to help prevent re-injury.
