Falls are a common source of wrist sprains or fractures.

Hand and wrist pain can be very debilitating for many athletes and aging individuals. Arthritis, tendonitis, fractures and sprains are the most common hand and wrist pain sources.  Some suffer from overuse injuries since as ligament strains, tendonitis, or carpal tunnel.  Many of these issues respond well to rest and physical therapy but some will benefit from injections of steroid, PRP, or other prolotherapy.  Ultrasound guided injections can help many return to normal activity quickly.  A combination of treatment options can help get wrist pain to resolve so when home treatments fail to resolve pain, seeing a sports medicine physician can provide the proper diagnosis and treatment to solve the problem.
