Thanks for your question.
Distal end fracture should be treated with immobilzation with a sling.
Figure of 8 should not be applied as this does not support the bone properly.
Sling is the only recommended conservative treatment.
If she is not keeping the sling, then she shoud be seen by a orthopedi specialist to consider internal fixation with pins.
But sling immobilization should be adequte.
The heasling usually takes places within 6 weeks.
She shouold be encouraged to use her shoulder after 2 weeks of injury to prevent fron shoulder.
