For the purpose of this article, we will not use individual sports as the primary delineator; however, the two different levels of play: High School and Collegiate. We plan to share insight that we have gained through decades of practice treating High School sports and collegiate athletes. This article offers readers reliable guidance on not only treating the athlete's hand but understanding the person as a whole and the struggles at each level of play.
