Broken Wrist

Select an injury location

What is a Broken Wrist?

A broken wrist is common following a fall on an outstretched hand. A Colles fracture is a fracture of the Radius bone of the forearm, just above the wrist. There is a great deal of wrist pain. The wrist displays a characteristic 'dinner fork' when viewed from the side. This is accompanied by wrist swelling and, as a result of the fracture, an inability to use the wrist and hand. Suspected wrist fractures require assessment by a doctor and an x-ray to confirm the diagnosis.

What can you do to prevent a Broken Wrist?

Staying on the bike is the best way to prevent wrist injuries. Having a sensible race strategy based upon your assessment of the course and the pre race briefing can help you to steer clear of trouble. Remember that bends and landing from a jump are the most common causes of a ball from the bike and also the time that most wrist fractures occur.

Protective equipment can lessen the impact of a fall if you do come off the bike. Wrist guards should always be worn as they significantly reduce the incidence of wrist injuries during falls.

What should you do if you suffer from a Broken Wrist?

If a wrist fracture is confirmed on x-ray, the initial treatment will be supervised by the doctor in the emergency department. If the two fragments of broken bone are shown to be close together, and well aligned, the treatment is simply to immobilise the wrist in a cast for 6 weeks. Depending on the preference of the treating doctor it may be possible to use a Removable Cast from two or three weeks so long as the x-ray shows that the bone is healing well.

Once the cast is removed, physiotherapy exercises using Therapeutic Putty, Hand Therapy Balls and Finger Strengtheners can add strength to the muscles around the wrist and resolve wrist swelling. In the period following the removal of the plaster it may be helpful to wear a Wrist Support when not doing the exercises.
