Therapy after a distal radius fracture can be relatively straightforward or challenging. Conservative and operative treatment options, potential complications, “life after the break,” patient education on fall prevention, and realistic expectations will be addressed.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to provide therapists with information regarding the epidemiology, relevant anatomy, bony healing process, and complications associated with distal radius fractures so that a successful rehabilitation program can be instituted. After you study the information here, you will be able to:
  • List three risk factors for developing a distal radius fracture
  • Describe appropriate treatments throughout the various stages of bone healing
  • Identify three complications of a distal radius fracture
  • Identify ways of addressing distal radius facture complications
