(HealthDay News) -- If you feel like you're falling, it's a reflex action to put your hand out to break the fall. That's why wrist sprains are so common.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons mentions these potential symptoms:
- Pain, especially when the wrist is moved.
- Soreness and tenderness.
- A feeling of warmth at the injury site.
- A tearing or popping sensation when you move the wrist.
