Fractured colles, non displaced. will my wrist heal normally in a splint? initially deformed and swollen. will deformity subside as swelling goes down?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Hello

The treatment is to reduce the fracture by manipulation from the traumatologist and then a cast is applied to keep it in its anatomical position.
The swelling will diminish and the deformity may no longer be visible. Normally it will not remain deformed or just a little callus could be palpable.
