Hand Injury Prognosis
Most hand injuries will heal without significant loss of function if evaluated by a doctor soon after the injury. Almost all hand injuries require a medical evaluation because even the most insignificant hand injuries have the potential for serious or crippling loss of function.
Many factors will play a role in determining how well the injury heals with the least limitation of function.
