Hand & Wrist

A hand fracture occurs when one of the small bones of the hand is broken. There are several small bones that together make up the supporting framework of the hand. If the fracture is not displaced, a cast or splint can be sufficient for treatment of this fracture. A broken wrist is among the most common broken bones. When you begin to fall, your natural instinct is to put your hands out to catch or break your fall. In doing so, the wrist is often suddenly, and forcefully, torqued or twisted . Most often, broken wrists can be treated in a cast. The wrist is one area of your body that is very amenable to cast treatment.
