Hand Sports Injuries and Treatments in Houston

COMMON SPORTS INJURIES

Whether you play sports for fun and exercise or are an athlete with professional-level skills and goals in Houston, hand sports injuries as well as wrist injuries can impact your life more than you might expect. Though most people rarely think of the complexity of the human hand, its strength and dexterity depends greatly upon an intricate system of bones, joints, tendons, muscle, nerves, and vessels all working together properly, without pain, stiffness, or loss of function. A dislocated finger, torn ligament, hand fracture, or other injury can not only affect your game, but your ability to perform such simple tasks as making a fist, typing an email, fastening a button, holding a fork, or manipulating a key into a lock.

Sports require an array of movements that could injure the various components of the hand and wrist. Crushing, bending, pulling, twisting, straining, or simple repetitive motions can cause everything from minor function issues to major sports injuries, which then require treatment options ranging from splinting and medication to surgery. Consulting a hand specialist can help minimize the impact of common sports injuries. Properly diagnosing and treating these sports injuries could not only restore hand function more quickly, but it could prevent long-term issues as well.

Common hand and wrist sports injuries include:

  • Tendonitis
  • Wrist Fracture
  • Jamming of the Fingers
  • Skier's or Gamekeeper's Thumb (tearing of the ligament at the base of the thumb)
