What Causes Pain After Wrist Fracture Repair Surgery?

Treatment for wrist pain

When wrist fracture repair surgery is performed, there are a number of structures that can be damaged. In wrist fractures, the ligaments and tendons around the wrist joint may get injured, sprained, or torn. These injuries can lead to pain after wrist fracture repair surgery because these tissues become inflamed which causes more pain than typically expected for this type of wrist injury.
