Broken bones in hand


Broken bones in hand

Suffering a broken bone of any kind can be extremely painful. It’s bad enough no matter what part of the body is affected, but when we suffer broken bones in hand injuries, especially to our dominant hand, it can have a severe impact on our everyday lives, because we are so dependent on our hands for everything that we do.

Causes of broken bones in hand

Hand injuries often occur in workplace accidents and can be caused by incidents involving tools or machinery, trauma or crush injuries of any kind. They are also a common outcome of sports injuries and slips, trips and falls. This is because of our natural reaction to put our hands out to save ourselves when falling. The hand takes the full force of the fall and some of its small and delicate bones can be broken as a result.

Diagnosis and treatment of broken bones in hand

If you are suffering from pain, swelling, bruising or weakness in your hand after an accident, one of your fingers seems misaligned, you are having problems grasping objects, or you have reduced motion in your fingers, you may have broken a bone in your hand. You need to visit a doctor as soon as possible to confirm your injuries and prevent permanent damage.

Severe cases of broken bones in the hand may require lengthy medical treatment as well as physiotherapy or other rehabilitation to recover function lost after an injury.
