Is it okay to have a sharp pain in the wrist after a fracture and difficulties rotating my hand up and down?

Also anyone using frequency specific microcurrent (find online) may be very helpful. Make sure you eat your veggies and fruits to help the healing process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Try to avoid sling: Prolonged use of a sling can lead to stiff shoulders. After a wrist injury and if you had surgery it is best to keep it elevated. 10 days after injury or surgery you can be placed in a splint that is usually more comfortable and lighter than a plaster cast/splint. If you did not have surgery and need immobilization fiberglass casts are much lighter. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
