Field Hockey is one of the most popular outdoors sports played in the UK and is played by both men and women. Because of the low position adopted in hockey with the dominant hand tending to be lower down the stick a number of hand injuries occur. These can include injuries to the bones of the hand such as breaks (fractures) of the small bones of the hand, called Carpal bones, or injuries to the bones of the fingers called Metacarpals and Phalanges. Other injuries can include ligament injuries or injuries to the soft tissues that move the fingers called tendons.
Unfortunately injuries to the head, face and eye are also common and as with all injuries to these regions of the body urgent medical attention should be sought.
As in many other sports, injuries to the ankle are very common in field hockey, as are injuries to the knee and hip region.
