Take it easy: Don't anticipate too much. If your wrist is fully functional, you may not even have a fracture but only a sprain. Rehabs are to be determined as a concerted effort between the primary care, the rehab unit and the ortho if with fracture. Again, rest it, splint it if needed and wait for the final evaluation.
