Scaphoid Fracture Cast?


Hi, this past weekend i tripped and fell while out on my usual run. landed on my hand, felt like i jammed my wrist but it still bothered dme after a few days, so i went to the doctor and was told i broke my scaphoid inmy wrist. they put me in a cast that goes all the way up to my armpit, and tell me i will be stuck in a cast for 12 weeks. why is my whole arm stuck in a cast if it’s just a bone inmy wrist that i hardly noyiced was broken?
