An In Depth Look At The Top 5 Boxing Injuries



What is Carpal Bossing?

Carpal Bossing is the name given to a condition which causes a lump on the back of the hand at the junction of the long finger bones and the small wrist bones. Arthritis, as a result of the thinning of the articular cartilage lining, encourages spurs of new bone which are produced as a natural response causing this prominence and swelling.

Interesting Fact: Carpal Bossing is most often seen among adults age 20 to 40-years-old.



Arthritis Treatment Guide



What can you do to prevent Carpal Bossing?

Carpal Bossing is typically caused after a knock to the back of the wrist so for a boxer technique and wearing the correct equipment is vital.

There is no standard procedure for preventing Carpal Bossing other than taking care of yourself.

Respite is a key component of injury prevention, allowing the body to recover fully and rest between activities. Cold therapy or ice will help reduce inflammation and soreness after a workout. Lastly, always wear hand wraps and try wherever possible to use at least 16oz gloves during sparring sessions.



Wrist Arthritis In Brief



What should you do if you suffer from Carpal Bossing?

In the first instance treatment should start with non-operative options, activity modification can be an effective way to manage pain coupled with anti-inflammatory medication.

A wrist brace will also help during certain activities or a steroid injection may be recommended by a doctor.

Surgery is rare but can be done under a local anaesthetic and usually takes between two to three hours. Success rates are as high as 85 per cent for good / excellent results with most patients having normal hand movement within a couple of days and returning to work within a week or so.
