Title: Scaphoid Fracture in a Collegiate Division 1 Baseball Player
Developed under the guidance of Dr. Sarah Christie , Exercise Science

"19 year old male presented with persistent pain in his right wrist. He injured the same wrist three months prior by siding into third base with his hand extended in front of him. In the fall, reported to his athletic trainer that he had injured his right wrist and was still experiencing pain. The patient was referred to an orthopedic physician for radiographs. The radiographs revealed a fracture of the right scaphoid. For treatment, a compression screw was applied through the scaphoid to join the bones together. An electrical bone growth stimulator was installed into the cast post operation."
