How long does it take to heal from a Barton fracture?
If you don’t get surgery, you’ll have to wear a cast around your wrist for about six weeks and then go to physical therapy. At therapy, you'll work on your wrist movement and strength. You may feel better in a few months, but healing can take a year. Be sure to ask your healthcare provider about when you can resume exercise, and when you get back to contact sports like soccer or hockey.
