Wrist Fracture

A wrist fracture is a medical term for a broken wrist. The wrist is a structure of eight small bones which connect with the two long forearm bones (the radius and ulna). Although a broken wrist can happen in any of these 10 bones, by far the most common bone to break is the radius. A break in the radius is a distal radius fracture.
