Broken Wrist (Wrist Fracture)

Your wrist is a complex joint made up of many bones, allowing you to move your hand up and down, and side to side, as well as to rotate. A fracture can occur in any of these bones when enough force is applied—when you fall on an outstretched hand, for example. In this video, you’ll find out other causes, as well as how a wrist fracture is treated.
