The distal radius fracture is a common clinical problem that mainly affects elderly women. The use of different modalities of physiotherapy has recently become a routine indication in rehabilitation process in these patients. A synthesis of the evidence is made using a Systematic Review of Randomized Clinical Trials. Objective: Determine whether there is scientific evidence to support the physiotherapy interventions used in the rehabilitation of patients with distal radius fractures. Search Strategy: Only Randomized Control Trials (RCTs) and Controlled Clinical Trials (CCCs) were included in the search. The databases used were MEDLINE, CINAHL, Central, EMBASE, PEDro and LILACS. Results: A total of 9 papers that met our eligibility criteria were selected. Conclusion: There is moderate evidence that low-intensity ultrasound accelerates bone healing. The evidence that a treatment program by a physical therapist is more effective than a home exercises program in the medium term is contradictory.
