I'm still having a lot of pain after spraining the ligaments in my wrist. Why?

Once the initial pain of the injury has subsided, the wrist may remain painful due to the ligamentous instability. If the ligaments have been damaged and have not healed properly, the bones do not slide against one another correctly as the wrist is moved. This can result in pain and a clicking or snapping sensation as the wrist is used for gripping activities. Talk to your doctor about ways to treat the pain and improve the stability of the wrist.
