The most common hand and wrist injuries in sport

Most sports, particularly those involving balls and rackets involve some kind of contact with the hands and fingers. Some sports such as basketball or netball are prone to more hand injuries. It’s quite easy to injure, fracture or dislocate the fingers or knuckles with these sports. If pain and swelling don’t go away after a few days of rest, ice and anti-inflammatories, you should have your fingers or hand checked with an x-ray. Injured joints can stiffen very quickly, and once stiff, are difficult to get back to normal. Orthopaedic surgeon Miss Tanaya Sarkhel tells us more about common hand and wrist injuries.

Miss Tanaya Sarkhel, an experienced orthopaedic surgeon, discusses treatment options for hand nerve irritation.
