These injuries are usually the result of industrial accidents, traffic collisions or slips, trips and falls. The most common injuries are tears (ruptures) of ligaments, strains and fractures of bones. When a ligament is ruptured, bones can move out of position, resulting in a dislocated joint. Generally this injury causes swelling, pain, stiffness and limited movement. If the injury causes even the slightest degree of permanent disability the financial award made in hand injury compensation claims can be very substantial.
Extensor Tendon Injuries
These important tendons, located on the back of the hand, allow you to straighten your fingers and thumb. Because of their location, they can be easily injured even by a minor cut.
Flexor Tendon Injuries
The muscles that bend or flex the fingers are found in the forearm and are called flexor muscles. The thumb has one long flexor muscle, and the fingers each have two flexor muscles. Deep cuts on the palm side of the wrist, hand, or fingers can injure the flexor tendons and nearby nerves and blood vessels. Surgical repair is often necessary.
This condition may occur at the joint at the base of the thumb or other fingers or at the middle joints of the fingers. Dislocations usually result when the thumb is bent too far out or the fingers are bent too far back. Surgery is often required to correct dislocations at the base of the thumb or fingers. Dislocations of the middle joints may be treated by taping the dislocated finger to an adjacent finger. If the ligament is badly torn, a splint is used, usually for 3 weeks.
The hand skeleton is made up of many bones that form its supporting framework. The hand may be stiff and weak after the fracture heals. Fractures that involve joint surfaces may lead to early arthritis in the involved joints. Occasionally bone may be missing or be so crushed that it cannot be repaired. In such cases, a bone graft may be necessary. In this procedure, bone is taken from another part of the body to help provide more stability.
