Ligamentous sports injuries of the hand and wrist.


Athletic injuries of the hand and wrist continue to increase as athletes get bigger, faster, and the weekend warrior continues to be active throughout his or her lifespan. The management of hand and wrist injuries in these athletes depends on the sport, position, timing during the season the injury occurs, and how many years the athlete has left to play in competition. In the past, these injuries were thought to be trivial; but if not ideally managed, complications can occur which may keep the skilled athlete or the weekend warrior out for a prolonged period of time. This article concentrates on common athletic injuries of the hand and wrist.
