Stop punching me in the butt!

fracutureOne of our more commonly seen fractures is the appropriately named “Boxer’s fracture.”  This results from punching objects, usually a wall, sometimes another person’s face.  The hand is broken at the neck of the pinky metacarpal bone, just before the big knuckle.  One recent sufferer from this injury is a young man who I know well.  However, he did not punch a wall, or a person’s face.  No, he punched his friend’s butt.  Yes, that’s right.  I thought I’d seen it all.  All I know is, I wish my butt was firm enough to cause hand fractures, but sadly, punching it would barely result in a sprain.
