You may not realize this, but your fingers, wrist, and hands are most fragile parts of your body, although they are compiled of 27 bones each and there are 6 easiest ways to break your finger, hand or wrist with little pain.
Growing up as an athlete, involved in a number of very different sports, I’ve had my share of broken bones. I remember being a kid and thinking it was so cool to have a bright colored cast to show off at school. However, I never really considered the pain of a broken bone that required that “cool cast.” That is until, I broke my wrist while roller skating at a friend’s birthday party when I was 8 years old. To be honest, I don’t remember much of the pain, but I do remember that it hurt a lot and it was a dull, numbing pain. But, after crying because the doctor only had white cast material (and a few phone calls and a special order later) I finally got the cool, grape colored cast I’d always wanted. Years later, I broke the other wrist learning to snowboard in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. This time around, I decorated my arm with a light blue (Carolina blue, in my opinion) cast.
If breaking arms wasn’t enough, I later broke a bone in my foot attempting to play soccer barefoot, which I’ve learned is not a very good idea. For this one, I didn’t get a cool cast, but it did put me on the bench for my soccer and gold teams at the time, which I did not enjoy at all. Surprisingly, the largest number of bones are in our feet and hands and those bones are also among 6 easiest bones to break in our body.
While, for me, the pain of broken bones was very noticeable, some people don’t notice at all when they’ve broken a bone. Depending on the type of injury, the healing process can take from 6 weeks to several months, and some breaks even require serious surgeries including, pins, screws or even wires in your body.
Just to show you the examples how easy is to break some of your body parts, we compiled the list of 6 easiest ways to break your finger, hand, or wrist with little pain, with the help of bodybuilding and other forums such as Reddit and Blurtit.
