Are you dealing with the long term effects of a wrist injury?
Having been in an accident, you may now be dealing with the long term effects of a wrist injury. At the time of the accident you may well have considered that the wrist would heal and that things would return to normal. Unfortunately though, like many thousands of other people, your injury may have had long term implications.
We at Accident Advice Helpline know only too well that the long term effects of a wrist injury can be just as severe in weeks, months and years to come, as they were at the time the accident occurred. With this in mind we have been securing compensation for those who have sustained such injuries through no fault of their own.
What are the long term effects of a wrist injury?
After your accident you may have received medical treatment for a break or fracture to the wrist. While this will have been set to allow the bone to heal back into position again, that does not always mean an end to the problem. In fact, for some accident victims this can only just be the beginning of their problems.
Arthritis is a common long term after-effect of a wrist injury and can leave the accident victim in a lot of pain. While it is true that many people suffer from arthritis, as they get older, a break caused by an accident can speed this process up considerably.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is another long term condition that can arise from a wrist injury. Surrounded by bones and ligaments, the carpal tunnel runs along the palm side of the hand and can be subject to numbness, a tingling sensation and the feeling of pins and needles.
While it is said that with regular treatment the aforementioned can be relieved over time, this is not always the case for all accident victims. In some instances their pain can be life-long and can prevent them from taking part in activities that they once took for granted.
