My son is 15yrs old very sportie and is complaining with pains in his wrist he can bend it back and forth and it hurts he is in a lot of pain but not in agony can you give me any idea what it could be
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
If he is very active, he could have suffered a fracture in his wrist and not known it
any kind of fall on an outstretched hand can cause this
I would try to get some xrays to rule out fracture

Ye I was thinking that he already broke this wrist but both wrist are sore right wrist he broke is the worse

He could have broken the other as well
if one is broken then he is susceptible to another break

You are the mom
You can make him do anything :)
