stiffness after cast removal

Hi..my mother has broken her radius in may, and put a cast for 2 months, after removing the cast there was stiffness in her wrist and fingers so that she can't bend them all the way down, her hand has improved now she can now use it much more than after removing the cast but still there is stiffness in her fingers...will her fingers come back to normal again?

Re: stiffness after cast removal

Tell her to keep moving them even if it hurts. They will get going again. It's just stiffness from lack of use and it will go away with use and time.

Re: stiffness after cast removal

Try giving her a small rubber ball to squeeze. That might get the strength back. the tendons in her hands are weak and need to be moved. And yes, it can take a lot of time....longer than the time the cast was on. She will be okay with time, I'm sure of it.

Re: stiffness after cast removal

I know i bothered you and i am so sorry for that, but i am worried about her..
she does excersises all the time, when she removed the cast she couldn't do anything even catch a blouse but now she is using it in her daily activities, but when she excersises her hand ,it becomes better but after a some time her hand became as before the excersise..do u think it is normal?
she puts it everyday in a hot water, do u advice her to do so?

thank you very much and i apologize for bothering you again
