What's better is that on this thread, all of the ads I saw were for rheumatoid arthritis and the Erikson Hand Center. But in reality it does seem that hand injuries are becoming more and more prevalent in all weight classes, not just the little guys as I had previously expected.

The skull is stronger than the hand.
