My 12 year old daughter hurt her wrist in gym class. It's not swollen, and she has full rom. Could be strained/sprained, does she need to see a doc?

In brief: Sprain

It's sounds like it may just be a sprain.
She can try a wrist support from the drugstore. If it does not improve get it checked.

In brief: Likely mild sprain

Since she is moving her wrist well without swelling etc.
.Likely she only sustained minor sprain. If she has some pain, motrin/advil/aleve for a few days will likely suffice. If symptoms worsen, then consult doc...Good luck.
