Wrist fracture occurs when one of the bones near your wrist break. Wrist fractures are a result of playing sports and falling from a bike, playground equipment, or falling down to age. Physiotherapists work with the individual to help them regain wrist motion, function, and strength. They also educate people to take preventive measures to avoid fracturing their wrist again.
The three types of wrist fractures that physiotherapists treat include:
If you experience pain in your wrist, especially when you move your hand, you likely have sustained a wrist fracture. Swelling of the wrist and numbness is also an indication of a fractured wrist. You may either require surgery depending on the severity of your fracture. Once the cast is removed, you can see a physiotherapist who will help you return mobilization to your wrist.
