Abstract

Young children and adolescents are becoming increasingly involved in recreational and professional sports. This inevitably leads to an increase in the number of sports-related injuries involving the hand and the wrist. Hence, physicians should have a good insight into macro- and microtraumas affecting the hand and the wrist. Prevention of injuries, correction of muscle-tendon imbalances, and maintenance of strength and flexibility are important issues for the prevention of disabilities in this age group.
