Boxing for fitness has become a popular exercise in the active community however like any new activity the body will take time to adapt, so how can we protect ourselves from becoming injured ?
Common hand injuries seen in boxers often affect the knuckles, the thumb or the carpo-metacarpal joints ( joints in the hand where the long bones of the hand (metacarpals) join with the smaller bones of the wrist/hand (carpals)). Stability of the wrist and hand during impact plays an essential part in injury prevention.
