Hands and Wrist Injuries Hakuba
FOOSH is a medical abbreviation for Fall On (an) Outstretched Hand and is a very common cause of injury in ski resorts.
A fall can often cause a strain or sprain on a joint, a torn ligament, or a fracture.
Some tendons attached to the digits can be strained or completely torn. If they are ruptured, they require protection and possible surgical repair.
We have a range of braces, splints, and taping techniques to stabilise and protect the injured joint from further harm, carefully selected over years of managing snow sports injuries.
