Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

DRF is one of the most common fractures. Distal radius fracture complications frequently occur and hinder effective hand use. A wide range of complications are often experienced, including pain, impaired range of motion (ROM), and reduced grip and pinch strength. This study intended to evaluate the functional recovery outcomes beyond six months post-DRF. Furthermore, it intended to investigate the possible associated factors that affect the functional recovery of the hand.
