Wrist sprains are common injuries that are often the result of a fall onto an outstretched hand. While other accidents and impacts can cause a sprained wrist, it is often the result of a forward or backward bend. Wrist pain that comes on gradually is usually from repetitive strain injury (RSI), such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
A broken wrist involves a break or fracture in the wrist end of the ulna forearm bones, radius bones or any of the small carpal bones located in the wrist.
Scaphiod fractures commonly occur with wrist sprains. Early detection and treatment are needed to avoid complications.
A sprained thumb is the result of the thumb being bent in a direction outside of its usual range of movement. This causes damage to the ligaments of the thumb that support the joint.
A broken finger is a common break or fracture in one of the three bones that make up the fingers called phalange bones. There are many causes of a broken finger, most of which involve it being crushed in between objects or bent by force, impact or collision.
