Gardening Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) are commonly seen in gardeners due to placing too much force on ligaments, muscles, joints, and tendons, which causes inflammation, pain, and a possible reduced range of motion.

Below is a partial list of the sports injuries and other activities with their related injuries treated at HandSport Surgery Institute in New York:

  • sprains of the interphalangeal joint of the fingers
