Treating Wrist Fractures in Florida
The wrist is made of a network of eight small bones connected through a
lining of cartilage and ligaments. They are attached to the radius and
ulna, which are included when classifying a wrist fracture. According
to the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, the most common bone
break in wrist fractures is the radius.
Handling a wrist fracture, like any fracture, depends on the severity of
the break. However, wrists differ in that they are very mobile due to
a network of multiple joints, not a single one. As a result, breaks are
more likely to require more stabilization. A well-experienced orthopaedist
may be able to ensure your wrist heals with maximum recovery of movement
