Parts of the hand that can be injured and type of injury
The hands are quite delicate as there are many small bones that can be damaged after an accident. The human hand consists of a total of 27 bones along with 4 fingers and a thumb. The main bones are the metacarpal bones, which accommodate the hand along with other bones such as the carpal bones and phalanges of the fingers.
Common tendon problems within the hand are tendonitis (related to diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis) & tenosynovitis (an inflammation of the tendon sheaths lining caused by strain or overuse).
- De Quervains Tendonitis – probably more related to the wrist than the hand. A swelling of the tendons.
- Extensor Tendon Injuries – closely related to mallet finger after damage is caused to the extensor tendons at the back of the hand.
- Flexor Tendon Laceration – These tendons extend from the hands to the flexor muscles in the forearm which help to bend or flex the fingers.
- Trigger Finger – There is a slick lining within the fingers that can become swollen or inflamed, which then forms a knot within the lining. This is called trigger finger due to the finger becoming crooked. The finger becomes painful and in many cases the finger becomes locked in position. If this is the case then surgery will be required to loosen the tendon to allow it to move more freely.

There are many types of accidents that can cause damage to the hand
