Overview

Any fracture of the hand needs immediate treatment. Your doctor may be able to realign most breaks without surgery by manipulating the bones back into position and applying a splint or brace to keep your hand immobilized. If you have a severe break, they may recommend surgery to realign your bones so they can heal properly. They may also prescribe physical therapy of specialized exercises to help you regain strength and motion in your hand.
