Volleyball Injuries

Youth sports have become increasingly competitive, and volleyball is no exception. This means that young athletes are not only playing for school teams, but also for traveling and league teams between seasons. Volleyball involves repetitive overhead motions such as blocking, spiking and serving. This leaves volleyball players vulnerable to traumatic injuries to the hands and fingers, as well as overuse injuries to the arms and shoulders.

Common volleyball related hand and arm injuries are:

  • Overuse Injuries
    • Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
    • Elbow Bursitis
    • Shoulder Injuries
  • Traumatic Injuries
    • Thumb Sprains and Fractures
    • Mallet Finger
    • Jammed Fingers
    • Wrist Sprains and 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.
