In brief: True sprain

You have to be sure that these were truly sprains and not fractures, and to be sure that they did not cause the wrist bones to separate.
If it is not better within a couple of weeks, you need to be checked by someone knowledgeable in this area.

In brief: Ligaments are injure

The ligaments in the wrist are injured and they are not healing probably due to the advil (ibuprofen) and Ibuprofen that stops healing from occurring.
Stop thos meda and find a prolotherapist to do prolotherapy tho the damaged areas and you will heal. Visit www.Getprolo.Com or www.Aaomed.Org for a prolotherapy doctor and to learn about it.

With all due respect, let's start out by at least confirming the diagnosis. A "sprained wrist" could mean many different things. As to prolotherapy, there is conflicting evidence as to it's true efficacy. To say "you will heal" without even knowing the diagnosis and given the limitations of all treatments, including prolotherapy, is misleading. For starters, SEE: Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2007 Apr 18;(2):CD004059. Prolotherapy injections for chronic low-back pain. Dagenais S, Yelland MJ, Del Mar C, Schoene ML.
