COLLES Fracture By Dr Anmol Arora ( Sr Homoeopathic Specialist )

A Colles fracture is a wrist fracture involving a break of the end of the radius bone of the forearm (“distal radius fracture”). Colles fracture

Wrist fractures occur most often in a fall or in a motor vehicle accident, but any sufficiently strong force on the hand can break the wrist. The wrist can be broken from a sudden force pushing the hand backwards.
A strong force pushing the hand into the forearm can also cause a Colles fracture, which often involves a break of the radius bone near its end. There is a natural weak spot in the radius where it widens.

Wrist arthritis may occur following a distal radius fracture. This can be the result of cartilage injury at the time of the break, or wear and tear from changes in the joint alignment after the bone is healed.
Carpal tunnel syndrome, causing numbness and tingling in the fingertips may also develop when a wrist fracture narrows the path for the nerve and tendons in front of the bone.

What can a therapist do to help?
• Depending on the problem, a therapist can be very helpful in providing a protective splint and supervising special exercises to improve movement and strength.
• Wrist and finger stiffness is a very common problem after this injury, and therapy can be the step which makes all of the difference
What can a doctor do to help?• Confirm that this is the problem. X-rays are usually needed to show exactly what the problem is. Treatment really depends on the type of break. Your doctor may recommend:
o moving the fingers and doing exercises right away
o wearing a splint or a cast
o having surgery to set the break, possibly using hardware (pins, screws, wires, etc.) to hold the pieces in place. There are many different types of surgery, and treatment must be tailored to fit not only the break but other factors which affect the healing process
