Wrist sprain: A wrist sprain is an injury to the ligaments of thr bones of the wrist. These bone are the distal most parts of the radius and or ulna and carpal bones. The carpal bones are attached by ligaments to each other, similar to a fracture there is pain swelling and stiffness. The simple answer is to speak to the surgeon as much depends upon the past surgery and current injury.
