Younger football players tend to suffer rotator cuff tear when a significant trauma has occurred. However, elbow injuries occur at both offensive and defensive positions in football and are usually a combination of multiple anatomical structure injuries. The most common hand and wrist injury in the NFL is a metacarpal fracture. Wrist sprains are common and very vexing to the medical staff regarding treatment management. Each of these, shoulder, hands, and wrist injury treatment and rehabilitation protocols that best ensure optimal healing are discussed in this course.
