Hand Fractures

Metacarpal fractures account for one-third of all hand fractures. The hand can break near the knuckle, mid-bone, or near the wrist. Signs and symptoms of a broken bone include: swelling, tenderness, deformity, inability to move the finger, shortened finger, depressed knuckle, or a finger overlap over its neighbor when you make a fist.
