Additional Conditions

The bones of the hand serve as a framework. This framework supports the muscles that make the wrist and fingers move.  When one of these hand bones is broken (fractured), it can prevent you from using the hand, wrist and fingers.


Fractures of the hand can occur in either the small bones of the fingers (phalanges) or the long bones (metacarpals). They can result from a twisting injury, a fall, a crush injury, or direct contact in sports. 

Symptoms of a broken hand can include:

  • Pain and stiffness

  • Difficulty moving the hand, wrist and/or fingers

  • Deformities such as a crooked finger (this is less likely)

  • Swelling

  • Depressed Knuckle

  • Shortened Finger

  • Tenderness
