A ligament injury of the wrist can occur when the ligaments, which are strong bands of tissue that connect bones to each other, become stretched or torn.



  • Trauma: A direct blow to the wrist, such as from a fall or a sports injury, can cause a ligament injury.
  • Overuse: Repetitive movements, such as typing or playing sports.
  • Sprains: A sprain occurs when a ligament is stretched or torn, often as a result of a fall or twisting injury.
  • Dislocation: When a bone in the wrist becomes dislocated, it can cause damage to the ligaments.


  • Wrist ligament injury can include pain, swelling, and difficulty using the wrist.


  • Rest, immobilization with a splint or cast, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery.
  • It's important to see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment of a wrist ligament injury.
