Wrist pain may be due to damage to your ligaments, bones or the cartilage that cushions your joints. In your case, falling on your outstretched hand may lead to cartilage tear or fracture. Minor strains usually respond to ice, rest and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications. For definite diagnosis, xray of the affected hand will help visualize the structures involved. Delays in diagnosis and treatment can lead to incomplete healing, reduced movement and disability.
