A Hand Fracture is a type of bone breakage in the hand. This can be in the smaller bones such as the fingers, or the larger bones in the palm. A fractured hand can be caused by falling accidents, sporting accidents and damaging twists. Often a hand fracture may heal without non-surgical treatment, however if it is severe, surgery is an option. The most common hand fracture is a fracture of the fifth metacarpal which is the bone in the hand that supports the little finger.
