Online Challenge Question—Week 5

Week #5: Strong force meets immoveable object

Question: We use our hands for thousands of tasks every day, from getting out of bed in the morning to brushing our teeth at night. With all of that work, our hands are bound to get banged up from time to time—blisters from raking leaves, paper cuts, you name it. People who play sports have their own injuries that are common to their "occupation"—you've probably heard of tennis elbow, turf toe, and a bunch of other sports injuries. One such injury is a fracture at the neck of a metacarpal (the bones between your palm and your fingers), often the fifth (or pinky finger) metacarpal. Can you guess what this injury is commonly called?

  1. Bowler's fracture
  2. De Quervain's tendonitis
  3. Jammed finger
  4. Boxer's fracture
