Are wrist and thumb injuries a major problem for linemen when playing football?


I am working on an engineering project where we have to come up with a problem and solve it. But first, we have to justify that the problem we come up with really exists as a problem in the real world. I need to know if wrist and thumb injuries to offensive and defensive linemen is a justifiable problem that, when solved, would decrease the risk of injury.
----------

I remember when I played tight end, and broke my thumb. In practice when I would get in a 3 point stance and put the weight on my hand it hurt very bad. So yes it can pose a problem. Because the line man might have to shift all his weight to his legs, which might make him unbalanced and also make him tired much quicker. Just screws up timing  (+ info)

Can hand grippers cause Carpal tunnel syndrome or provoke wrist injuries?


I've been using hand grippers for a few months, until today I staggered upon an article saying they can cause carpal tunnel or other wrist injuries. Is this true? If so how long would it take? I also noticed that the veins on my forearms are very noticeable now, which the article said is due to poor blood circulation cause by the gripper. If I stop now would it go away?
----------

sorry I can not help you directly with this one man.

I must admit that I never had CTS but I did a bit of research on the topic and found 2 resources that deal only with carpal tunnel syndrome

here they are:

It won;t hurt if u checked them out, maybe you will find your answer there but I recommend that you check with a doctor beforehand because CTS can have various causes, like

- Injuries, including prior wrist fractures
- Medical disorders that result in constricted blood vessels, like Raynaud‘s disease
- Medical conditions that result in fluid retention or inflammation, including diabetes,
rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme disease and hypothyroidism

Hope it helps  (+ info)

What kinds of injuries are common in archers, particularly in the wrist?


I ask because I am an amateur archer. I shoot competitively.

Today we were shooting at 15 meters, and towards the end of our practice session I felt a twinge in my wrist (The wrist that I draw with) right after my release. The next round I shot my wrist felt weird, kind of like there was a kink in it.

Needless to say, I stopped shooting and called it a day.
----------

Probably an arrow through the wrist, haha.

Really, it could be an issue from over-using or over-stretching your wrist. Ice it, and if the problem continues, see a doctor.  (+ info)

If you break your growth plate in your wrist, are there any permanent injuries?


As in does your wrist stop growing or something?
----------

Will, there are a number of factors here. If you break a growth plate in most cases it is just stabilized with a cast. In more severe cases the area might have to be surgically stabilized. If you totally destroy the growth center then what will happen is that the bone will stop growing. So a lot of this depends up your age. If you are an older teenager the chances are the growth centers are closing if not closed.  (+ info)
