Causes for Forearm Fracture

Fractures often occur where falls or direct force on the forearm especially falling on hard surfaces, impacting the forearm.

Symptoms & Diagnosis

If you have broken either one or both of the bones in your forearm, you may have severe pain and swelling in the limb and be unable to move it. Your forearm may also be visibly deformed, for example if the fracture is displaced or the skin is broken by fragmented bone. Our doctor will carry out a physical examination and arrange for an X-ray to confirm the diagnosis. The X-ray will also establish whether you have sustained any other injuries, such as a wrist or elbow dislocation.
