What are Work-Related Injuries?
It is quite common for employees to sustain work-related hand injuries. This is because workers use their hands for almost everything, which makes them more prone to damage. Common work-related injuries to the hand and/or wrist include:
- Lacerations: Lacerations may vary in severity and can lead to tendon injuries. Common conditions that are associated with tendon injuries include mallet finger, jersey finger, extensor tendon issues, and flexor tendon issues.
- Overuse Syndrome: Overuse syndrome is caused by repetitive movements. The most common overuse-related conditions include de Quervain’s syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Work-Related Fractures: Common work-related hand fractures may include distal radius, metacarpal, phalangeal, and scaphoid.
- Crush Injuries: These involve the tips of the fingers or fingertip injuries. They can occur due to heavy objects falling on the fingers, injuries including hammers, fingers getting caught between machinery, and more.
The treatment option that is right for you will depend on your specific injury, the severity of the injury,
your overall health, your profession, and more. If you have sustained a hand-related work injury and are
