    Spiral Fraction

    OK, so recently I fractured my hand, and it is a spiral fracture. I will probably be in a cast for 6-8 weeks. My question has anyone else had a spiral fracture in their hand? How long did it take to come back after it was healed? did you need any added support or PT afterwards? Thanks in advance...
