Distal Radius (Wrist) Fracture

Your forearm has two bones, the radius and ulna. The larger of the two bones is called a radius, and this is often susceptible to trauma. In fact, from any fall or motor vehicle accident may cause a break of the wrist. This is sometimes called a distal radius fracture. Often times the term fracture and break are used interchangeably in the healthcare field as they mean the same thing.
