Wrist injuries occur frequently because the person has been exposed to a fall trauma and has reflexively put off with one or both hands. You often see it in sports where you jump, such as gymnastics, basketball and handball. And even more frequent in sports where you risk falling a lot.
Here you think of roller skaters, skateboarders, BMX and cycling and so on. As a reflex, almost everyone will stretch their hands out, thereby trying to stop the fall, with the result that when the hand (or hands) hits the ground, the force will stretch the wrist and thus stretch the joint capsule and ligaments.
If the force is even greater, the bones of the forearm will not be able to withstand the force and will break.
