Football Injuriesfootball injuries

Football injuries are quite common. Of all football injuries among high school and college players, approximately 30% affect the hands and arms.

Many of these injuries occur due to the contact nature of the sport. Defensive players that tackle and block are at the highest risk for injury. Some common football related hand and arm injuries include:

  • Hand Fractures
  • Thumb Sprains and Fractures
  • Jammed Fingers
  • Mallet Finger
  • Wrist Sprains and Fractures
  • Elbow Fractures

In case of a sports related injury, such as a break or sprain, our specialists recommend seeking medical attention immediately. This is especially important with children. If you notice any pain, swelling or deformity, do not hesitate to visit a specialist.

Immediate medical attention is important. The longer a patient waits to seek medical attention, the more difficult the repair may be.
