Hand Fractures

Fractures of the hand can occur in either the small or long bones of the fingers. They can result from a twisting injury, fall, crush injury, or direct contact in sports.

A few of the main hand fracture symptoms people experience are:

  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Deformity
  • Inability to move finger
  • Shortened finger
  • Finger crosses over its neighbor when making a partial fist

In the event of a fracture, there are many forms of medical treatment available. These include passive exercises, active (flexing and extending) exercises, and splints to maintain or increase range of motion achieved through therapy. Most cases are able to be treated without surgery. Our team of experienced medical staff at Hand Microsurgery are specialized in treating the hand.
