Wrist fractures and injuries

Wrist fractures are common injuries that can happen to anyone, but they’re not always easy to spot. The most common type of fracture is a Colles' fracture, which occurs when the wrist is bent back and the bones in your forearm jam into the wrist.


The symptoms of a wrist fracture include:


  • Pain and swelling around the wrist


  • Pain when moving your hand or fingers


  • Difficulty moving your wrist


  • Deformity


If you experience any of the above symptoms, seek medical help as soon as possible.


However not all wrist pain and loss of function are because of a fracture, there are many conditions that could be causing your wrist pain: repetitive stress, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and others. An early diagnosis can help you get the right treatment needed, book here at Open MRI, for your quick MRI results within 48 hours.
