How long does it take for a Bennett fracture to heal?
Hello, I am a 14 years old male. Two weeks back I met with an accident while playing football which led to an injury. I want to resume my practice. I wanted to ask how long does it take for a Bennett fracture to heal?
@noah Hello, A Bennett’s Fracture is a fracture plus dislocation of the Metacarpal bone at the base of the thumb. The fracture involves the joint surface and is often significantly displaced. This is a highly unstable injury and occurs commonly in football. The Bennett fracture healed and full recovery of function was found between 4-8 weeks. It is common for the thumb to feel weak for 6 months after this injury.
