Flexor Tendon Injuries


 

The flexor tendons are found on the palm side of the hand and wrist, and work to bend (or flex) the fingers, thumb and wrist. Flexor tendons may be injured from a deep cut or secondary to other trauma or disease. If completely severed, you will be unable to bend the affected part. A cut flexor tendon usually requires surgery. There may also be other structures injured at the same time, including nerves and blood vessels, which need to be repaired. (See Tendon Repair.)
