Wrist Fracture

Wrist fractures most commonly occur due to falls when individuals have their arm stretched out to catch themselves. A wrist fracture is diagnosed when any of the bones of the wrist breaks or cracks. Xray is required to diagnose a fracture, some fractures may require surgery. Physical therapy is essential in regaining function after the fracture has healed or surgery.

  • Pain around the wrist that may radiate to the fingers
  • Swelling of the wrist and hand
  • Tenderness of the wrist
  • Pain with moving the wrist
