    Hand injuries


    One of the most common things that people injure are their hands. This is because there are so many ways that someone’s hands can be injured and so many places where they can be injured. Below are three of the most common ways that people injure their hands each and every day.

    Hand injuries can happen at work

Things can fall on them, you might bang them on something, you can sprain your wrist, you can fall, or a number of other things that you can do to hurt your hand. You can even hurt your hand just by doing your job when you are typing, for example you could develop Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Overall, there are a lot of ways that you can injure your hands at work.

    Hand injuries can happen in a car accident

    The second way that you can get hand injuries is when you’re in a car accident. There are a lot of people who injured their hands and arms as a result a car accident, whether they put their arms through a window or their arm gets crushed in the accident. These kinds of injuries can be very difficult to deal with, and they often will lead to an even more devastating injuries like an amputation. Hand injuries in car accidents are very common.

    Hand injuries can happen in sports
