Causes and Types of Hand and Wrist Injuries
Common causes of hand/wrist injuries include: slip and falls, dog bites, auto accidents, faulty machinery, hazardous job sites, and other labor- related injuries. Whatever the cause, though, hand/wrist injuries can be extremely detrimental to an individual’s daily life and financial stability. When an injury to the hand/wrist occurs, one can suffer from loss of his/her motion, dexterity, grip, and the inability to complete even the simplest of tasks.
