Treatment for aches, pains & injuries
The hand is one of the most flexible, yet intricate joints in the human body, particularly when it comes to mobility, sensitivity and strength. Because of its varied use, the hand is susceptible to injury and disease. Finger, hand and wrist injuries most commonly occur when participating in sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks and work around the home.
In children, any injury occurring at the end of a long bone near a joint may injure the growth plate and needs to be evaluated. Older adults are at higher risk for injuries and fractures because they lose muscle mass and bone strength as they age, as well as problems with vision and balance that can increase their risk of accidental injury.
Treatment depends on the following:
- Location of the injury
- Type and severity of the injury
- How long ago the injury occurred
- Your age
- Your health condition and activities
