Ligamentous Injuries and Dislocations

Injury to the ligamentous structures surrounding the fingers and thumb is common during sports activities, especially those that involve ball handling or heavy physical contact.

The majority of these injuries can be treated non-operatively, and they rarely result in prolonged loss of participation.
