NC57.1Y/S66.1 Other specified injury of flexor muscle, fascia or tendon of other finger at wrist or hand level



Other specified injury of flexor muscle, fascia, or tendon of other finger at wrist or hand level is a condition caused by overuse of the flexors in the wrist or hand, such as repetitive gripping. It can also be caused by direct trauma to the area, such as a cut or a blow.


Diagnosis of this condition is typically made through physical examination and medical imaging, such as X-rays or an MRI. The physician may also order blood tests to rule out other potential causes of the injury.

Differential diagnosis

Other potential causes of injury to the flexors in the wrist or hand include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout.


Treatment for this condition typically involves rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications. Physical therapy and bracing may also be used to support the affected area and to help strengthen the muscles. In some cases, surgery may be recommended.


With proper treatment, the prognosis for this condition is generally good. However, it is important to take measures to avoid aggravating the injury and to follow the recommended treatment plan. If left untreated, the injury could become worse and lead to permanent damage.
