    It also depends on the location of the fracture and it severity. If you have persistent wrist pain that wont go away, you should be evaluated by an orthopedic hand specialist. You can move the wrist with a hairline fracture but it’s typically not recommended. Immobilization is typically recommended to prevent healing complications. Sprains of the wrist involve the ligaments being damaged. A break may may suggest a more severe fracture. A broken wrist is a fractured wrist. A fracture is a compromise of the bone and may vary in severity and this includes a stress fracture. A wrist sprain is painful as well but it’s not a bone injury though.
