Hand pain following a car accident can be severe and deserves immediate Chiropractic attention.

Common Hand Injuries Caused By Auto Accidents In Conyers

The hand consists of 123 ligaments and 29 bones. Because of its many parts, there are several different ways a hand can become injured during a car accident.

  • Tearing or straining of the ligaments can occur during an automobile accident from blunt trauma or hyperextension.
  • Many fractures can occur during a car accident, but the most common one is called a boxer’s fracture. This fracture happens when one or more of the bones behind your knuckles break.
  • Joints may become dislocated. The most common dislocation is at the middle knuckle known as the PIP joint.

Treatment of for these injuries usually includes immobilization to heal correctly. Most bones can be healed without surgery. However, a correct initial diagnosis is critical.
