Do Colles’ fracture patients benefit from routine referral to physiotherapy following cast removal?

Watt CF, Taylor NF, Baskus K. Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2000;120(7-8):413-5.

Colies’ fracture patients who received physiotherapy immediately following cast removal were compared with patients who received no active therapy following cast removal in a prospective randomised study. Patients who attended physiotherapy achieved significantly greater increases in wrist extension and grip strength after 6 weeks compared to patients who received no active therapy.
