Hello Ricki Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Previously it needs to be clarified again to the wrist joint that is torn, What do you mean is a tear in the ligament (tissue that connects bone to bone and usually this ligament is found in the joint between one bone and another bone) wrist or a fracture in the joint ?
If your intentions are found, tears usually lead to ligament tears. Because the term 'tearing' is rarely used for bone damage.
Tears in the ligaments can occur due to injury for example due to an accident, or while exercising. The condition of injury to the ligaments is usually called a sprain or in a sprain lay. The tearing of this ligament has several levels of redness:
Grade 1: found a few tears Grade 2: found a moderate tear Grade 3: found a complete tear, or a complete ligament rupture But this structure will usually be more clearly seen through a CT scan or MRI. X-ray examination usually only can see the condition of the bone.
Symptoms that can occur if you have a ligament injury are:
Swollen Pain Pain Motion is limited to the affected joint. In the case of ligament injury, the treatment will be done according to the gradation, if the tear is too severe the action taken is to rest the affected joint, compress with ice or a cold towel to reduce swelling, then perform dressing on the joint exposed to minimize movement. Or if the injury is severe enough, usually also given a brace or buffer on the affected joints then wrapped, and re-evaluated. And if a complete or complete tear occurs, usually the doctor recommends to repair the ligament with a surgical procedure.
And regarding the healing time will depend on the grade or severity of damage to the ligament for example:
In grade 1 ligament injuries, healing will occur within a few weeks usually within 6 weeks the strength of the ligament will recover and repair of the damaged structure has occurred. In grade 2 ligament injuries, usually to help the healing process the doctor provides a buffer or brace to reduce movement and minimize further damage caused by movement. Usually ligament function can recover in a few weeks 6 weeks to 12 weeks depending on the severity of the ligament. In grade 3 ligament injuries there is usually a severe or total ligament tear, and requires surgical procedures. However, not all grade 3 ligament tears are performed surgically. To cure it usually takes a longer time of 3 to 4 months even in some people can reach 12 months for the fun back to normal. Therefore, because the severity is different it will affect the healing time, you should consult an orthopedic specialist who has handled you before. To be re-evaluated, and maybe the doctor will recommend you to do physiotherapy to support the function of normal joint recovery. And avoid massage or massage in the case of injury, because it can expand or worsen the injury you experience.
