Comparison Study of Using Ultrasound Guidance for Hematoma Blocks vs. Traditional Approach
"Are Ultrasound-Guided Hematoma Blocks for Distal Forearm Fractures Superior to the Landmark-Guided Method for Hematoma Blocks?"

Will use visual analog scales to compare effectiveness of traditional hematoma block vs ultrasound guided hematoma block with regards to pain. This will be done for closed forearm fractures.
