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 and strength.
