Hand Fracture Treatment

Description

The most common form of treatment is placing the hand in a cast to promote healing. The fingers may also be taped together to prevent rotation of the fracture in the cast. If the fractured ends are misaligned, the physician may perform a closed reduction, in which the bones are pushed back into their proper positions. If the bones cannot be acceptably realigned this way, or if there is scissoring of the fingers, surgery may be needed.
