Broken Wrist Recovery

A broken wrist, or distal radius fracture, is a common wrist injury that can result from falls, sports injuries, accidents, and other traumas.

With an expert team and state-of-the-art technology, South Carolina Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center is the trusted source for safe and healthy broken wrist recovery in Charleston, SC.

Broken Wrist Treatment

A broken wrist is just one of the many hand and elbow issues we address through surgery, injections, and other treatment methods. Some broken wrists may be healed using only a cast, splint, or brace and do not require surgery. But more severe fractures and those occurring in older patients may require a surgical procedure for the wrist to properly heal. Surgery may involve the implantation of plates or screws to secure the broken bones.

Ongoing physical therapy is an integral part of broken wrist recovery and typically included as part of a treatment plan to strengthen the wrist and improve range of motion after being in a cast.
