Broken Wrist

Hi, My horse threw me for a loop and I broke my left wrist in multiple places last Nov 17, 2008, had surgery (plate and 10 screws), was in a cast to Jan 9, in a splint for a couple more weeks. The up and down the outside left side it feels like a hard leather strap inside,not allowing my wrist and arm to turn inside very far. My question is could this just be a muscle that needs to be worked more or could this be something to do with the little bone on the end of the outside arm-bone (ulna) that could make this happen? You're welcome to email me for the x-rays. Thanks so much.

The BioSkin Hinged Knee Skin is the lightest hinge available. The bicentric aluminum alloy hinge is offset to eliminate pressure at the joint line.
