Pretty much. I have a history of spraining my wrist from doing close-grip bench and deadlifts. I went to a chiro instead of a doctor, all they did was wrap it, said to take it easy for a few days, and said to make sure to use wraps (which I hadn't been) when benching/squatting. I've done that ever since and haven't had issues. If that still happened when you were wearing wraps...I don't know, that really sucks.
