Distal Fracture – Arthritis

January 27, 2021


Because the distal radius serves as the platform for the wrist bones and is the source of motion in the wrist joint, a fracture of the distal radius that affects joint alignment can lead to the development of arthritis in the wrist if it’s not treated accurately and appropriately. The irregularity in the joint surface can lead to wear and tear on the sensitive cartilage covering the bones of the wrist, and that will eventually lead to the development of arthritis. Therefore, a distal radius fracture needs to be treated by an expert surgeon and needs to be treated effectively in order to help minimize the risk of arthritis as a result of that fracture.
