My kid was playing today and my mother pulled her fingers and then she started yelling with pain around her wrist. There is no swelling, she is moving her fingers but she is not lifting her hands and she says it's paining. Took xray also and doctor said there is no fracture.Please help me understand what the issue is.

hi,
just recheck, pain may be in elbow. generally pulling hand will cause a bone slip out of its ligament, which is called pulled elbow. An Ortho doctor could easily correct it. It is very painful condition, but once corrected, he will be normal.
Reply me after rechecking where is pain and age of child.
Regards
Dr.premkumar
