Seek further care: Hand and wrist fractures can be tricky to diagnose and treatment can vary quite a bit, depending on which bone is fractured. Suspicion of a fracture in the hand requires more investigation, including a possible CT or MRI (depending on the suspected injury) and care from a hand surgeon.
