Colles' fracture is a common type of injury. In order to improve hand, wrist and elbow functions appropriate rehabilitation program should be applied soon after the orthopedic intervention. In the present study, physical treatment was given to 55 patients with Colles' fracture. The treatment procedure consisted of physical exercise and paraffin application. We compared pretreatment and post-treatment degrees of flexion, extension, radial and ulnar deviation, supination and pronation of the wrist. We achieved satisfactory results following physical therapy of the wrist. Rehabilitation program is of utmost importance in Colles' fracture so it should be applied soon after the orthopedic manipulation.
