Conservative Treatment for Hand & Wrist Fractures
Unsure if your hand or wrist is broken? If you’re experiencing the following symptoms, you likely have a fracture:
- Pain, swelling, and tenderness in the affected area
- Bruising or discoloration
- Difficulty moving the hand or wrist
- Numbness or tingling sensations
- Deformity or misalignment of the affected area
At Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, we offer a wide range of treatment options for hand and wrist fractures. Depending on the severity of your injury, our orthopedic specialists may recommend one or more of the following treatments:
- Immobilization: Splinting or casting the affected area can help to immobilize the bones and allow them to heal properly.
- Medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help to manage pain and reduce inflammation.
- Physical therapy: Our team of physical therapists can help you to regain strength and mobility in your hand or wrist through targeted exercises and stretches.
- Surgery: In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the fracture and restore proper function to the hand or wrist.
