What is a Wrist Fracture?

Physiotherapy for wrist fractureWrist 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:

  • Colles’ Fracture – Distal radius with dorsal dislocation of fragments
  • Smith’s Fracture – Distal radius with Volar dislocation of fragments
  • Barton’s Fracture – Fracture displacement of the Radiocarpal joint
  • Chauffeur’s Fracture – Fracture of the Radial Styloid
