A colles fracture is considered to be the most common type of distal radius fractures. This occurs when the radius bone is broken near the wrist - the distal end. The break normally occurs one inch from the wrist and is extremely common in the elderly - a fall from a standing position onto the wrist will often break this area. The colles fracture is identified by the upwards tilt of the broken end of the bone and will be identified through an X-Ray.
