Wrist Fractures are Common in Skiers and Snowboarders

 If you fall, your natural instinct is to reach out and catch yourself. Unfortunately, this can result in a fracture. Wrist guards can help, as can learning to tumble safely without putting your hands out first.

If you sustain a wrist fracture, massage can be beneficial in helping you to regain joint flexibility, and can help with the discomfort. Treatment can begin as early as 2 weeks after a fracture, with gentle massage.
