A fracture may cause pain, stiffness and loss of movement in your hand. Many people think that because they can move their hand, it means it is not broken, but this is a myth. If you’ve injured your hand and it is painful, visit a hand surgeon at the next available appointment.
During your visit, the hand surgeon may take an x-ray to determine the type of fracture. Treatment options may vary. Watch our video for more information or visit www.HandCare.org.
