Symptoms of Ligament Tears in Wrists
If you’ve never experienced an injury like a torn ligament, it may be difficult to recognize the symptoms. While the most obvious signs are pain and swelling in the wrist, other symptoms of a torn ligament can include:
- Increased pain with movement or a certain activity
- Bruising or discoloration
- Stiffness or a limited range of motion
- A clicking or snapping sound

You can receive a proper diagnosis of your wrist pain from the board-certified and fellowship-trained physicians at Premier Bone & Joint Centers. We’ll review your symptoms, complete an examination, and perform X-rays and MRIs.
