- Scaphoid and Colles Fractures are wrist fractures caused by falling and may be difficult to diagnose.
- Metacarpal Fractures are broken hand bones. The metacarpals are the small bones in the hand.
- Although Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often thought of as being caused by repeated computer use, carpal tunnel syndrome can also be cause by a strong and sudden impact on the hand, such as an air bag deploying. The tendons in the wrist expand and cause pain or numbness in the hand.
- Broken Fingers may come from a variety of injuries from car accidents to falls.
An injury to the hand, wrist or fingers can be very painful and may place numerous limitations on our ability to perform daily activities. Because the wrist, hands and fingers are necessary in work activities, employment can be seriously impacted if a person suffers a serious hand or wrist fracture, possibly resulting in a temporary inability to work, therefore the injured will not be able to earn a living. Many standard daily events, including getting dressed, preparing meals, doing chores, typing, and writing may be difficult and time consuming. Because of this consideration, compensation for wrist injuries is often very high. Young children and the elderly make up the majority of people who suffer from wrist and hand fractures.
A broken arm is a very common, yet painful, type of injury for people of all ages. Being involved in a motor vehicle accident or falling and landing on your arm are two common causes for an arm fracture. There are certain signs that may signal that you have experienced a broken arm, such as a snapping sound, swelling, pain, and bruising, bleeding, and restricted movement. In the event of a seriously fractured arm, the broken bone may puncture the skin.
The main bones in the arm are:
- Ulna is the forearm bone located between the elbow and wrist, and a break in this bone especially is common for children.
- Humerus is the bone located between the shoulder and elbow.
- Radius is the forearm bone located between the elbow and wrist, and a break in this bone is common for children.

The shoulder consists of the clavicle (collar bone) and the scapula (shoulder blade). The upper arm bone, which is called the humerus, is joined to the socket allowing arm movement. The shoulder blade is a very strong bone and is not very likely break. In fact, less than 1% of bone fractures occur to the scapula. In the event of a broken shoulder other areas of the body are likely to be injured as well, including the ribs and collar bone.
The collar bone, which is also called the clavicle, joins the shoulder to the sternum. A clavicle fracture is a common injury, and typically results from a fall on the arm and shoulder areas. The recovery time for a broken clavicle is approximately six weeks, but may be shorter or longer depending upon certain factors. Babies are at risk for fractured clavicles when they are delivered vaginally, and in that scenario the injuries are very difficult to treat. In certain cases, a child may suffer from a shoulder injury during delivery which may result in even more serious injuries, such as brachial plexus injuries affecting the brachial plexus nerves. Males between the ages of 25 and 45 are at the highest risk for shoulder fractures because of the amount of sports and physical activities in which they are involved.

THE COLLAR BONE
The clavicle bone or "collar bone" connects the scapula bone in your shoulder to your sternum in your chest. Its task is to hold the shoulder upward and backward. Clavicle fractures are very common bone injuries. A break in the clavicle bone is usually always a closed fracture that normally takes about 6 weeks to heal in an adult. Accidents such as falls against the shoulder or on an extended hand are the most regular cause of fractures of the clavicle. Sometimes, a blow from a blunt object or a collision of some type can cause the clavicle to break.
