So what happens when a wrist’s twisted with lots of pressure without breaking or chipping a bone? You might end up with an inflammation of a tendon or group of with swelling and pain (tendinitis; http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001229.htm).
Well that’s what I got right now. It hurts like hell in all directions the tendon runs. The doctor told me to wear a brace (splinter) day and night till the pain and inflammation go away (about six weeks). At least, I didn’t break or chip a bone.
