The wrist is a complex joint with many bones and ligaments holding it together. The muscles that move the wrist are located in the forearm.
The wrist allows for a wide range of motion, including flexion, and extension, as well as radial and ulnar deviation. The bones of the wrist are held together by ligaments, which can be torn if the joint is overextended.
The most common injury to the wrist is a sprained ligament, which can occur when the joint is overextended. Treatment for a wrist sprain includes immobilization and ice.
If you have any pain or swelling in your wrist, it is important to see a doctor to rule out any serious injuries.
