Hi thanks for your question.
You have not mentioned which bone of wrist had fractured.Most probable reason could be a malunited fracture or an incompleted united fracture.I would suggest you to consult an orthopedic surgeon who may be able to examine you and prescribe you appropriate treatment.
Hope this answers your question.
