Broken Wrist 

(fractured distal radius)

Seeking Advice

If you're concerned that you may have fractured your wrist, it is important to see your doctor or Emergency Department as soon as possible.

A delay in diagnosis and treatment can lead to poor healing of your bones, stiffness of your joints and weakness of your mucles.

Bring along information about yourself

It can be a great help for your doctor if you bring along the following information about yourself

  • A list of your medications, including the name and dosage.
  • Information about your medical problems and past treatment
  • Previous investigation results, such as xrays and blood tests.
