"post colles wrist fracture - no physio offered"

About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I recently broke my wrist and had K-pins inserted. After 7 weeks the plaster came off (Kent and Canterbury fracture clinic) but I wasn't offered any physio - and the wrist wasn't x-rayed. One week later I have only very limited movement. Is this usual? I would have thought physio. was necessary. Anyone any thoughts on this?
