If you suffer from severe pain caused by a forearm fracture, please Schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic specialists as soon as possible.
The forearm consists of two bones, one on either side of the arm. These bones, the radius and the ulna, run all the way down to the wrist.
How do Orthopedic Specialists Treat a Forearm Fracture?
Orthopedists can sometimes treat small, simple fractures in the forearm by simply casting the arm for 4-6 weeks. The physician will follow up on your progress with appointments and X-rays to the bone sets and heals correctly. Patients will usually see a physical therapist after removing the cast to help regain strength and motion.
