Doctor insights on:
So my daugther was playing volleyball on Wed. She woke up Thurs. With her wrist bruised and now she has no feeling in her thumb. Is this normal?
Sprain: There are quite a few ligaments and tendons around the wrist and joints of the hand therefore any injury to this area can easily result in a sprain or damage to nerves. If it's not causing much discomfort and you have full normal strength there is less need for concern as most sprains settle down in a week or two.

A splint can help ito relive the pain in your wrist/joint. ...Read more
