Hello, goddess. Well I will explain, fractures in the medical world are called fractures. In the human hand from the elbow to the wrist blood is formed by two adjacent or parallel bones, namely the radius and ulna bones. Distal impaction fractures of the radius and avulsion fractures of the ulnar styloid process mean that there are fractures at the ends of the radius and ulna bones. These fractures generally occur because of a fall in a state of the hands supporting the body. If a person falls with an outstretched hand, the hand will suddenly stiffen, and then cause the hand to twist and compress the forearm. This causes this type of fracture. The image of the hand will usually look bent backwards. If medical treatment is carried out, it can be cured. But it must be with a doctor's monitoring for some time, because the bones need time for the healing process. The medical action taken depends on the shape of the fracture and other things judged by the doctor. Bringing broken bones to a massage therapist is not recommended because it can cause the fracture to get worse and treatment not going well.
My advice is that you go back to having your hand checked by a bone specialist so that treatment can be carried out properly. Your doctor will then reassess the shape of your fracture. If necessary, you may be asked to perform another X-ray. What actions are taken will be in accordance with the procedures from the specialist. To return to normal mala takes time for the healing process. Meanwhile you can do :
Expand the consumption of high-calcium foods such as milk to speed up your healing process. Avoid movement with a broken hand. Have regular check-ups with your doctor for the development of your hand. Enough rest Hopefully it's useful
