Both bone forearm fractures occur when both the ulnar and radius break, usually the result of direct trauma or a high-energy fall.
Both bone forearm fractures occur when both the ulnar and radius break, usually the result of direct trauma or a high-energy fall. A diagnosis is made by x-ray, and treatment is determined by the severity of the fracture, the patient’s age and their medical condition. If the fractures are not displaced and can be adequately immobilized, the fracture can be treated in a splint or cast. Other fractures that are displaced, unstable or open need to be treated with surgery. Please refer to our “Procedures” section for more information.
As our patient, you will have an in-depth consultation with one of our doctors. We will create an individualized treatment plan together, tailored to your problem and lifestyle. Our doctors prefer non-invasive treatments whenever possible, including physical therapy and/or injections. If your problem ultimately does require surgery, our doctors prefer the least invasive surgical techniques possible. Our goals are the same as yours: to get you back to living your best life, pain free.
