Symptoms Associated With a Torn Ligament
Nobody ever wants to assume the worst and associate an ache or pain with a severe injury. However, tearing a ligament in your wrist usually presents some notable symptoms that should be taken seriously. Some obvious signs are pain and swelling in the wrist, but you may also experience:
- Extra pain with wrist movement or a certain activity
- Bruising or discoloration
- Stiffness or a limited range of motion
- A clicking or snapping sound
