She already had knee pain whch only aggravated due to fall.. Now pain on wrist reduced.. But full RoM is not possible.. Knee pain increased and she can't sit or stand without pain.. She had a MRI taken both for Knee and wrist.. Results are attached.. Pls suggest if Treatment needed or Just rest at home is enough as pain on wrist has reduced despite it being an Undisplaced Fracture of distal radial metaphyses.. Thank you for Reading it..

Mrs Ganga has a wrist fracture, it will heal with a crepe bandage also if she doesn't exert her wrist too much. Although a plaster is a good idea. It will not only give support to the wrist but also give pain relief. The pain can be managed with a good painkiller like dolo 650 twice a day after food for 5 days. Apply diclo gel at knee and use crepe bandage if swelling is there. Take vitamin d injection to help her bone heal faster as in old age healing slows down. She will be fine in a few weeks. Her pain will reduce after 2 weeks and bone will heal in a month. There might remain stiffness in the wrist. Which will need stretching to release and can take upto 6 months depending on her ability.
Next Steps
consult if needed
Health Tips

The investigation required for injury to the wrist joint is an XRAY and not an MRI. Anyway, she will require a cast application or a wrist immobiliser application and rest to the wrist for atleast a month. Then physio should be started after a month to relieve the stiffness. Limb elevation and arm sling pouch application are advised. Consult your nearest Orthopeadic surgeon for a cast application
Next Steps
Do not use the hand until the pain subsides. dont massage at the fracture site
