Wrist Pain From An Auto Accident
Have you hurt your wrist in a car accident? This type of injury is very common in auto accidents because your hands are on the steering wheel at impact. Your natural reaction in a situation like that is to throw you arms in front of you to protect your body. That means your wrist takes the direct force of the collision.
This type of trauma can strain the muscles and other parts of the wrist. At the worst, it will cause broken bones and compression fractures. The quick shock of a car crash results in injuries that can show up immediately. Or they may not show up for hours or a few days. Please don’t take a “wait an see” attitude with your wrist injury. Your quality of life is too important to you, and those who depend on you. You should not suffer needlessly. Even with treatment, it can take months to recover, and you can have very limited use of your wrist during that time.
