Wrist fracture (distal radius fracture)

Your forearm consists of two main bones, the radius and the ulna. The end of the radius bone closest to the wrist is call the distal radius and fractures to this area are incredibly common. The distal radius is actually one of the bones broken most frequently in the body and is the most commonly broken bone in the arm.
