What is a Hand | Wrist Fracture/Break/Sprain?

Regain hand and wrist functionality with our expert care for fractures, breaks, and sprains. Our board-certified specialists diagnose and create customized treatment plans, including immobilization with custom-made casts and hand therapy. For more severe cases, we offer surgical options like CRPP and ORIF to realign and fixate bones. Trust our comprehensive approach to help you recover strength and mobility in your hand and wrist.


The hand and wrist are very important body parts. Hand and wrist injuries are extremely common because the hand and wrist are constantly used. Manual laborers, athletes, and active individuals are most at risk. A hand or wrist fracture, break, or sprain may occur when a patient:

  • Accidently strikes their hand or wrist with or against a solid object
  • Falls on an open or closed hand
  • Makes a fist and punches a solid object

Pain, swelling, bruising, and anatomical deformity are common symptoms. Injuries should be seen by our hand specialist as soon as possible. Our hand specialists are fellowship trained and board-certified. A hand or wrist fracture, break, or sprain is accurately diagnosed and a customized treatment plan is created. Symptoms are quickly reduced and the fracture, break, or sprain heals.

How is a Hand | Wrist Fracture/Break/Sprain Treated?

Immobilization is the most common nonsurgical treatment option. OIBO specialists create comfortable custom-made casts, splints, and braces. They help bones perfectly align and heal. Anti-inflammatory medications are prescribed to decrease inflammation and pain. Hand therapy is prescribed after the fracture, break, or sprain heals.

Surgery is recommended for some fractures and breaks—specifically those that cause joint misalignments and deformities. During a closed reduction percutaneous pinning (CRPP), an  specialist manipulates the hand or wrist to realign the bones. A small pin is used to fixate the bones. No incision is made. During an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF), an specialist realigns the bones through an incision. A metal plate and screws are used to fixate the bones. The hand or wrist is immobilized in a splint after both procedures. Bone healing takes place over many weeks. A strong solid bone forms after recovery.
