1. What are the most common upper extremity injuries?
Sprains (labral tears, AC joint separations, wrist), strains (rotator cuff tears), dislocations (shoulder, finger) and fractures (humerus, elbow, wrist, and finger) are the most common injuries to occur in the upper extremity. The individual's age and health status, type of activity at time of injury, and mechanism (how the injury occurred) affect injury location and severity. A 17 year old male wrestler may sustain a dislocation of the shoulder (ball of the shoulder comes out of the socket) when attempting to escape his opponent, whereas a 65 year old woman may fracture her proximal humerus (top part of the arm bone) or wrist from a ground level fall. Treatment varies from activity modification, brief periods of immobilization and rehabilitation, to surgical intervention through minimally invasive or open procedures. Goals of treatment include restoration of anatomy, pain relief, and return to sport or functional independence with activities of daily living (i.e. hygiene care).
