03 Feb Top Hand & Upper Extremity Injuries Prompting ER / Urgent Care Visits
Hand and upper extremity injuries account for over half of the orthopaedic injuries seen in an ER or urgent care center.
According to a 2012 study published in the Hand journal, the most common region injured is the finger (38.4%), and the most common upper extremity injury was a fracture (29.2%).
Specific injuries with high incidence rates (all per 100,000 per year) included finger lacerations (221), wrist fractures (72), finger fractures (68), and lower arm fractures (64). 
While home is cited as the most common setting for an upper extremity injury, sports injuries in the field run a close second.
