Playing Sports With Wrist Stitches
Obtain MD clearance: The short answer is, "yes". But it depends upon the specifics of your wound severity. You should protect the wound from further injury, debris, dirt, and water, etc. The wound should be dry (biologically sealed) - not draining blood or fluid. A simple dressing and potentially an added protective wrap or pad may help as well. In the end, seek clearance from your treating healthcare provider first. ...Read more

I fell on my wrist playing sport. There was little swelling but a lot of purple/blue bruising could it still be serious?
X-ray to be sure: Unless there is an obvious deformity you may not be able to tell the difference with the naked eye. While a sprain is an injury to the ligaments of the wrist, and a fracture is damage to the bone, strains of muscles and tendons are also possible. In any case, common symptoms may be pain, limited strength/ motion, swelling, and/ or bruising. Have an x-ray to be sure! ...Read more

My boyfriend has fractured his spine before . Unexpectedly he sometimes yells in pain that his wrist hurt . He plays sports i fear it's serious .
Maybe unrelated: Depends on what part of his spine was previously fractured, and what type of fracture he had. Was it a cervical spine fracture? If not, then the wrist pain is most likely unrelated to the prior fracture. Even if it was a cervical spine fracture, it may still be unrelated. He needs to get his wrist examined by his doctor. ...Read more
Is it alright to play sports like volleyball and baseball with a nail left inside my wrist?(scaphoid fracture)my doctor says it need not be taken out.
Scaphoid fractures: can be treated with a screw that is commonly "buried' in the bone so that after it is healed and the OK is officially given ( that is VERY IMPORTANT ) one can use the wrsit and the hand normally.

My 10 year old son just diagnosed with hand foot mouth disease. He is generally feeling fine. He still play sports with his father twice a day. Okay?
Sure, but...: Hand/foot/mouth is a viral illness usually caused by a virus called a coxsackie virus. Usually we see this in our part of the country in spring/early summer, but we too have seen some cases in our office the past few weeks. Your body will fight this off on its own, so if he's feeling ok, he can be as active as he feels ok for. He is fighting an illness, though, so insure plenty of rest and fluids. ...Read more

Evalutation: Difficult to say for sure. If you have a tendonitis, this should improve with rest, ice, time, and possibly a wrist brace. My concern is that you might have something more serious such as a fracture of a wrist bone which can start out as a nagging pain but become more severe. If it doesn't improve in 2 weeks i would see a doctor and get an xray. Good luck, . ...Read more
Carpal Tunnel: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a thickening of the ligament that crosses over the wrist. When someone does repetative motion of the hand such as during sports or writing, this ligament can thicken and start to cause pain as well as numbness of the fingers. However, wrist pain can also be caused by a fracture of one of the bones of the wrist and from a strain or pull of another ligament in the wrist. ...Read more

Broke my wrist two years ago and it still hasn't healed? It is painful after writing for more than 10 minutes straight, and playing tennis is painful.
Consultation time: If your pain persists 2 years after a fracture, it may be poor healing of the bones, ligamental injury or other problem. You should go to a specialist and start with a full complete re-examination and work-up, including MRI or CT with arthrogram to determine a cause of persistent pain. Then you can plan with your doctor for the appropriate therapy. ...Read more

About ago a week i was playing basketball and another ran into and i straight on my back wrist. I now have some pain.
Sprained my wrist playing hockey the other night, would i benefit from taping it for future games until its fully healed?
Returning to play...:
Before returning to play make sure you have full motion & good strength in your wrist. Once you are ready, taping/ bracing would be a good idea for extra support.
Keep in mind that there are several ways to tape a wrist & the best method for you should provide support for injured structures, not put excessive strain on them.
Remember: persistent pain may indicate that you need an x-ray/ mri. ...Read more
