In brief: No lifting
Restrictions are set and discussed by your doctor. In general, do not lift anything or do any gripping, pushing, pulling, or twisting while healing from a broken wrist.
These restrictions are usually in place for six weeks. Failure to restrict your activities may cause the broken pieces to move out of place and worsen your hand and arm function.

In brief: Easy does it
No lifting, pulling, pushing or grasping over 1 pound for 6 weeks.
All fractures are not equal, some need a cast while some need surgery and others need to just take it easy.
