Have you suffered a recent injury to your hand in the Boca Raton, FL area? This intricate part of the human body is vital for everyday activities and self-care. If you have an injury to one or both hands suddenly things like tying your shoes, writing a note, typing on a computer, or throwing a ball becomes difficult, painful, or impossible.
