A fractured scaphoid is a common wrist injury, many may think of it as a fractured wrist, or simply a sprained wrist.
Most people experience pain or swelling around the base of the thumb and into the wrist with a fractured scaphoid. In many cases it’s likely there will be no visible deformity and many dismiss the problem as a sprain and fail to seek proper medical attention and advice.

Action Rehab can assess, advise, and treat broken scaphoids and seek an educated opinion when required. Our hand therapists have the ability to read X-rays and CT scans can assess medical imagery.
Because of its location, blood supply, and possible damage to blood vessels around the broken scaphoid can cause the healing process to slow, sometimes taking months.
