If the wrist is bent over it could be a fracture? Is there any way you can take him to the ER vet for an x-ray? That is the only way you are going to know if he is going to get better or if he needs further treatment. I know that is probably not what you wanted to hear but I am just being honest. I have been a vet for 20 years and I still need x-ray to confirm if there is a fracture or a dislocation.
