Detailed Description

Boxer’s Fracture Treatment

As you can likely infer, “boxer fractures” are typically sustained when one punches something or someone with a closed fist. Ironically, such injuries are not overly common among boxers as they are trained to avoid such injuries.

Traditionally this break affects the base of the fifth finger—specifically the metacarpal bone that attaches the knuckles to the wrist bones—but this term is also used to describe injuries to the fourth metacarpal. This can cause pain, swelling, bruising, abnormal bone movement, misalignment and possibly a cut on the skin if it is a more serious break.

Initial treatment involves immobilizing the hand with splint that extends from the mid-forearm to the fingers to prevent further damage and applying ice, taking non-steroid anti-inflammatory pain medications and elevating the hand to reduce swelling and pain. You can find more hand braces here.

Following a visit to the doctor, treatment will involve managing pain, immobilizing the affected area via a boxer’s splint or cast and watching for infection. An important component of treating boxer’s fracture is that the splint immobilizes the joint above and below the injury site, as is the case with this Corflex splint for boxer’s fractures.
