The study will focus on patients treated with volar locked plating following an extraarticular distal radius fracture. In a prospective manner the investigators intend to analyze hand function, x-ray and other parameters in order to investigate whether early mobilization and a targeted program of physiotherapy postoperatively leads to a better functional result and earlier return to a normal activity level. The investigators analysis will also focus on the safety of early mobilization with regards to possible detrimental effects on the osteosynthesis, bony union, associated soft-tissue injuries and functional outcome. The investigators also intend to assess the cost of more intensive follow-up and physiotherapy and do a cost-benefit evaluation.
