FINGERS BRACE FOR BOXER’S FRACTURE
Boxer’s fracture is a common condition also in daily activities, not only in sport. It is a fracture at the neck of the fourth and fifth bones that forms the knuckles of a hand. It occurs when patient strikes an object with a closed fist.
Boxer’s fracture is divided into 2 types:
- Brawler’s fracture – the fracture occurs at the neck of the fifth metacarpal forming the knuckle of the little finger
- Bar Room fracture – occurs at the neck of the fourth or fifth metacarpal
Typical symptoms of fracture are pain, swelling and bruising around the fourth and fifth bones. The first goal of treatment is immobilization the fingers to permit proper healing and reduce the pain. It’s very important to remember about immobilization the joints above and below the site of injury.
