Sports Injuries Q & A

What types of sports injuries affect the hand and wrist?

A hand or wrist injury may occur from overuse or trauma. Some of the most common sports-related hand and wrist injuries include:

  • Jammed finger or mallet finger
  • Fracture of the hand or finger
  • Finger dislocation
  • Tendon injury or tendonitis
  • Stress fracture
  • Ulnar collateral ligament tear, also known as skier’s thumb
  • Nerve Injuries

If you fell and injured your hand while playing sports, Dr. Wear can determine the cause of your symptoms by examining your hand and taking X-rays as needed.

How is a sports hand or wrist injury treated?

Treatment for your hand injury may depend on the injury itself. Dr. Wear will create a personalized treatment plan based on your injury, health, and recovery goals to help you heal as quickly and safely as possible.

While Dr. Wear is an expert hand surgeon, she doesn’t always recommend surgery. Treatment is geared towards healing your injury and getting you the best result with the least amount of risk. It may require physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, splinting or casting.
