Hand injuries are some of the most commonly seen in all sports due to the fact that they are used in almost everything that we do not only in sports but our everyday lives. Although the hand is only one word, dont let it mislead you in thinking there are not multiple types of injuries that can occur here. The hand is made up of 27 bones and consists of three different sections: carpal bones in the wrist, metacarpals in the palm region, and phalanges or fingers. Most injuries to the hand are not severe enough to require surgical intervention and can be healed on its own with the proper brace, cast or splint. But remember that this is a very complex area of the body and it is important to seek medical attention if you have suffered from any of these injuries because neglecting these injuries can lead to further damage in other areas in the hand or possibly outside of the hand.
