One of the most common – and painful -- forearm fractures I see is the distal radius fracture. The radius is the larger of the two bones of the forearm. The end toward the wrist is called the distal end – hence the term, distal radius fracture.
When it comes to frequency, the radius is the arm bone folks are most likely to break. In our office, we see radius fractures in a variety of situations: if a fall causes you to land on your outstretched hands, if you are in a car or bicycle accident, a fall from a horse – the list is more like a scroll that rolls to the ground and then some.
