Dislocated Finger | How to Fix, Types & Recovery Time

Treatment options and prevention for dislocated finger

Treatment will depend on the severity and type of dislocation, as well as further details of the diagnosis, described below. Treatments typically include some element of pain control and may include other non-surgical or surgical measures.


To diagnose a dislocated finger, a physician will usually take X-rays of your finger from multiple angles in order to visualize the entirety of the joint. Imaging the finger is important for determining treatment, such as if the joint is amenable to closed reduction or popping it back into place. The joint should not be popped back into place if there is a fracture in any of the surrounding bones. Furthermore, imaging can help distinguish between a dislocated and jammed finger. A jammed finger will not have evidence of dislocation on X-rays or changes in any of the surrounding tendons.

Pain control

The mainstay of therapy of a dislocated finger is closed reduction. Pain control and anesthesia is an important first step in closed reduction. In older children and adults, a digital nerve block is usually sufficient for anesthesia. In a digital nerve block, an anesthetic is injected locally into the nerve of the finger so that you don’t feel pain in that area. Young children may require procedural sedation for closed reduction of dislocated joints.

Resetting the joint and splinting

Once the physician has determined the direction of the dislocation, he or she will apply force in the appropriate direction to reset the joint in place. All closed reductions are followed by the application of an immobilization splint. The type of dislocation also determines how long you should wear a splint.

  • Dorsal dislocation of the middle joint of the finger requires splinting for about three to five days.
  • Dorsal dislocation of the joint closest to the tip of the finger necessitates a splint for two to three weeks.
  • A volar dislocation of the middle joint requires a splint for about four weeks.


Surgery may be indicated in cases of joint dislocation. Some potential reasons to pursue surgical management include a fracture in the surrounding bones, continuous joint instability despite the closed reduction, or failure to reduce the joint despite multiple attempts.

Dislocated Finger (Child)

A dislocation occurs when the strong bands of tissue (ligaments) that hold the bones of a finger joint together tear. This lets the bones move apart and out of place. Your child may have pain, swelling, and bruising. When a finger dislocates, a small “chip” or fracture in the bone may also occur. If the bones are only partially out of place, the injury may be called a subluxation.

When a dislocation occurs, the bones are usually put back into place (reduction). After the bones are realigned (reduced), the healthcare provider may tape the injured finger to the one next to it. This is called buddy taping. It helps keep the dislocated bones in place while the finger heals. In some cases, the finger is put into a splint. This protects the finger. The healthcare provider will tell you how long your child needs to wear the buddy tape or splint.

Most dislocations heal on their own after a reduction. This is true even for those that include a minor fracture.  The healing process may take weeks to months, depending on how serious the injury is. Some dislocations need more treatment. Some may need surgery to fix them. This is done by an orthopedic surgeon. This is a surgeon who specializes in treating bone, muscle, joint, and tendon problems.

The healthcare provider may not be able to tell right away if your child needs more treatment. That’s why it’s important to follow up as directed, especially if the injury isn’t healing as expected.

In some cases, a dislocation is not able to be put back into place in the emergency department. Your child will likely need more treatment. Follow up as advised.

Home care

Follow these guidelines when caring for your child at home:

  • Your child’s healthcare provider may prescribe medicine for swelling and pain. Follow the provider’s instructions for giving this medicine to your child. If pain medicine was not prescribed, ask the provider what medicine to give your child for pain or discomfort. Don’t give aspirin to your child unless the provider tells you to.

  • Follow the provider’s instructions on how your child can use his or her affected hand.

  • Keep the affected hand raised to ease pain and swelling. This is most important during the first 48 hours after the injury. Have your child sit or lie down as often as possible. Put pillows under your child’s arm so that the affected hand is raised above the level of the heart. For babies and younger children, watch that the pillows don’t slip and move near the face.

  • Put a cold pack on the injury to help control the swelling. You can make a cold pack by wrapping a plastic bag of ice cubes in a thin towel. As the ice melts, be careful that the splint doesn’t get wet. You can put the pack directly on a splint. But don’t put it directly on the skin. This can damage the skin. Most children don’t like the feel of the cold. Don’t force your child to use the cold pack. Sometimes it helps to make a game of it.

  • Hold the pack on the injured area for 10 minutes every 1 to 2 hours the first day. Continue this 3 to 4 times a day for the next 2 days, and then as needed. You can place the cold pack directly on the splint. Wrap the cold pack in a thin towel.

  • Make sure your child wears the buddy tape or splint until told otherwise.

  • If the buddy tape gets wet or dirty, gently remove it. Retape the fingers with first aid tape. This is available in any drugstore.

  • Care for a splint as you’ve been told. Don’t put any powders or lotions inside the splint. Keep your child from sticking objects into the splint. For bathing, put a plastic bag over the hand and seal it at the top with tape or a rubber band to keep the splint dry.

  • If the injury includes cuts or scrapes that aren’t covered, care for these as you have been told.

  • Don’t allow your child to do any activities that could reinjure the finger. This includes sports.

Follow-up care

Follow up with your child’s healthcare provider, or as advised.

Special note to parents

Healthcare providers are trained to recognize injuries like this one in newborns as a sign of possible abuse. Several healthcare providers may ask questions about how your child was injured. Healthcare providers are required by law to ask you these questions. This is done to protect the child. Please try to be patient and not take offense.

When to seek medical advice

Call your child’s healthcare provider right away if any of these occur:

  • Signs of infection. These include warmth, redness, or swelling, or foul-smelling drainage from a wound

  • Finger of the injured hand becomes cold, blue, numb, burning, or tingly.  If the splint is on, loosen it before going for help. It may be on too tightly.

  • Fussiness or crying in a baby that can’t be soothed

  • Swelling or pain that gets worse. A baby who can’t yet talk may show pain with crying that can’t be soothed. If the splint is on, loosen it before seeking help.

  • Tingling in the finger or hand that is new or getting worse

Also call your child’s provider right away if your child has a fever (see Fever and children, below) or chills

Fever and children

Use a digital thermometer to check your child’s temperature. Don’t use a mercury thermometer. There are different kinds of digital thermometers. They include ones for the mouth, ear, forehead (temporal), rectum, or armpit. Ear temperatures aren’t accurate before 6 months of age. Don’t take an oral temperature until your child is at least 4 years old.

Use a rectal thermometer with care. It may accidentally poke a hole in the rectum. It may pass on germs from the stool. Follow the product maker’s directions for correct use. If you don’t feel OK using a rectal thermometer, use another type. When you talk to your child’s healthcare provider, tell him or her which type you used.

Below are guidelines to know if your child has a fever. Your child’s healthcare provider may give you different numbers for your child.

A baby under 3 months old:

  • First, ask your child’s healthcare provider how you should take the temperature.

  • Rectal or forehead: 100.4°F (38°C) or higher

  • Armpit: 99°F (37.2°C) or higher

A child age 3 months to 36 months (3 years):

  • Rectal, forehead, or ear: 102°F (38.9°C) or higher

  • Armpit: 101°F (38.3°C) or higher

Call the healthcare provider in these cases:

  • Repeated temperature of 104°F (40°C) or higher

  • Fever that lasts more than 24 hours in a child under age 2

  • Fever that lasts for 3 days in a child age 2 or older

Dislocated Finger | London Hand Surgeon


Dislocated finger is a common injury, it often occurs as the result of catching the finger awkwardly and in sports. The joint
most often dislocated is the first joint in the finger, the PIP joint.


The diagnosis of a finger fracture and decision of how to treat it is usually made with good quality X rays in addition to a
thorough examination of the finger. In some cases a scan is required.


A dislocated finger joint first needs to be put back into position. Sometimes this is done ‘on the field’ by someone with medical
experience, or in an A&E department. Further treatment by a specialist is always required to ensure a rapid recovery, to prevent
further injury occurring while the finger is healing and to help regain full range of movement.

After examining the finger, particularly to assess the ligaments around the joint and the joint surface, an X-ray is taken.
An X-ray shows if there is an associated fracture, not an uncommon situation. When a joint is dislocated, the ligaments around
the joint are damaged – either partly or completely torn. Treatment is directed to getting the ligaments healed and restoring a
stable joint with full range of movement.

Once the dislocated joint is back in place, the stability of the joint is assessed. If the joint is relatively stable, a splint
will be used to protect the joint an prevent dislocation recurring while the finger is healing. Splintage may use a neighbouring
finger to strap the injured one to (buddy strapping), or a more definitive custom made plastic splint that provides a greated amount
of protection. In cases where the joint is unstable after reduction, it may be necessary to hold the joint in the correct position
using a fine, stiff wire (K-wire) drilled across the joint. This is a minor operation. Hand therapy (specialised physiotherapy). It
is very important following a dislocated finger, to prevent the joint from becoming stiff (this can occur quite quickly). Hand therapy
involves a tailored programme of exercises, physical therapy such as stretching, and sometimes other treatments, for example ultrasound.
You will also have exercises to do at home.

Dislocated Finger: Treatment & First Aid

Dislocated Finger: Short-Term Treatment & First Aid

When a person suffers a dislocated finger, it is important that they seek professional medical care. It is recommended to visit the emergency room immediately after the dislocation because delayed treatment can delay the healing process and might cause permanent damage in the finger. It is also important to ice the finger as soon as possible. Icing the finger will help to reduce swelling and pain.

Often, a person with a dislocated finger will try to realign the dislocated joint themselves. This is highly dangerous and can result in even more damage, pain, and permanent disfigurement. Therefore, a person should never try to ‘pop’ their dislocated fingers back into joint.

Once a person sees a doctor, the doctor will likely want to perform an x-ray to check to see if there is a fracture in the finger. Once it is determined that there is no fracture, the doctor will most likely realign the finger joint to its proper position. If the doctor cannot realign the finger properly, or if there were fractures in addition to the dislocation, surgery may be needed to fix the joint.

A doctor will likely x-ray a dislocated finger to check for any fractures.

After realigning the finger, a splint should be placed on the finger to keep the joint immobilized. This will help to prevent the bones from coming back out of joint and improve the healing process. Instead of wearing a brace or splint, a person can also tape their dislocated finger to its neighboring finger. Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can be taken to treat the pain. However, it is important to follow the dosage instructions on the bottle and be sure not to take more than what is instructed.

After a finger dislocation is realigned, a person should wear a finger splint or tape the injured finger to its neighboring finger to help immobilize the finger to improve the healing process.

Dislocated Finger: Long-Term Treatment

Often, the first few days or weeks after a dislocation, the joint that has been dislocated will be painful and it might remain swollen. The joint will also be highly susceptible to re-injury while the tissue and ligaments heal and return to their original place, shape, and size. Therefore, it is usually recommended to wear the finger split for a few days up to a couple weeks. The doctor will give their recommendation as to how long the split should be worn, based on the extent of the dislocation. A person should always follow their doctor’s instructions as to how long they should wear the finger splint.

If pain continues to be an issue, a person can continue to take over-the-counter pain relievers in order to control the pain in the days and weeks following the dislocation.

Lesson Summary

Dislocated fingers occur when the bones of a finger are moved out of their original location. These injuries are very common in sports such as basketball, football, wrestling, and volleyball.

When a finger dislocation occurs, it is very important to seek professional medical care. Not seeking proper care may result in permanent damage to the finger. It is also important to ice the finger immediately in order to reduce swelling and pain. A person should NEVER try to realign the finger join themselves.

A doctor will likely take an x-ray of the finger to make sure there are no fractures. The doctor will then realign the bones in the finger and then place the finger in a splint. A person might need to wear the splint for up to a couple weeks, depending on the severity of the dislocation. To treat the pain, a person can take over-the-counter pain relievers, making sure to follow the dosage instructions on the bottle.

Dislocated Finger – Finger Dislocation

Injuries >

Wrist & Hand > Dislocated Finger

(Also known as Finger Dislocation)

What is a dislocated finger?

A dislocated finger is a relatively common, traumatic sporting injury characterized by tearing of the connective tissue surrounding one of the finger joints with subsequent displacement of the bones forming the joint so they are no longer situated next to each other.

Each of the 4 fingers (excluding the thumb) comprises of 3 small bones known as phalanges. These small bones join to each other at the IP joints (interphalangeal Joints) and to the bones of the palm (metacarpals) at the MCP joints (metacarpophalangeal joints) thereby forming 3 joints for each finger (figure 1).Each of these joints comprises of strong connective tissue wrapping around the bony ends and cartilage which lies between the joint surfaces, cushioning the impact of one bone on another during activity.

Figure 1 – Anatomy for a Dislocated Finger

During certain movements of the fingers, stretching forces are placed on the finger joints. If these forces are excessive due to too much repetition or high force, injury to the joints may occur. This typically involves damage or tearing to the connective tissue surrounding the joint. When the forces involved are too great and beyond what the connective tissue and supporting muscles can withstand, one or more small bones of the fingers may displace or ‘pop out’ of their normal position. When this occurs, the condition is known as a dislocated finger and may affect one or more IP or MCP joints. Damage to other structures such as tendons and bones (fractures) may also occur as a result of a finger dislocation.

Causes of a dislocated finger

Dislocated fingers are relatively common in ball sports involving catching, such as basketball, netball, cricket or football, and typically occur due to a specific incident that forcibly bends the finger in the wrong direction (such as a hyperextension force or a sideways force). A direct blow to the point of the finger may also cause a dislocation. A dislocated finger may also occur in contact sports due to a collision with another player or in martial arts.

Signs and symptoms of a dislocated finger

Patients with a dislocated finger often experience a sudden onset of intense finger pain during the acute incident or causative activity. This is typically associated with an obvious bump or deformity in the finger owing to the displacement of the finger bones. An audible ‘pop’ or tearing sound may have occurred at the time of injury.

Pain may be felt on the front, back or sides of the affected finger joint. Occasionally pain may also be referred further along the finger or into the hand on the affected side. Swelling may occur instantly or may progressively develop over a number of hours. Patients may also sometimes experience pins and needles or numbness in the affected fingers.

Once the dislocated finger has been ‘relocated’, the patient may experience pain and stiffness that may increase with specific activities or with rest (particularly in the morning). Symptoms may be exacerbated with activities that involve the use of the hand and fingers such as opening jars or doors, writing, typing, picking up heavy objects, general gripping activity, cooking, household activities or placing weight through the affected hand and fingers. It is also common for patients to experience pain on firmly touching the affected region, and a feeling of weakness or ‘instability’ such that the finger may easily ‘pop out’ again. Bruising may also occur following injury, however may take a number of days to develop.

Diagnosis of a dislocated finger

A thorough subjective and objective examination from a physiotherapist is usually sufficient to diagnose a dislocated finger. X-rays should be taken to rule out fractures and assist with diagnosis. All finger dislocations should be X-rayed before reduction to exclude a fracture and after reduction to confirm relocation. Investigations such as an MRI or CT scan may sometimes be used to assist with diagnosis.

Treatment for a dislocated finger

Before commencing treatment for a dislocated finger, patients with this condition should have X-rays to determine if there are any fractures associated with the dislocation. This is particularly important in the case of traumatic finger dislocation where large forces are involved and should ideally occur before attempting to ‘relocate’ the bones back into their original position. Following X-ray an experienced sports medicine professional can assist with safely ‘relocating’ the bones. This should not be attempted alone, as long term damage may occur to other structures around the finger such as nerves, bones, ligaments and cartilage if the finger relocation is performed incorrectly. If a fracture is detected on X-ray, or if the condition is severe, surgical intervention may be indicated.

Following relocation of the finger, most patients heal well with appropriate physiotherapy treatment. The success rate of treatment is largely dictated by patient compliance. Treatment usually entails an initial period of immobilization in a splint for a number of weeks to allow the damaged connective tissue to heal and form a ‘scar’. During this period of immobilization, gentle exercises to maintain movement and strength may be allowed as guided by the treating physiotherapist.

Following this, patients should perform pain-free flexibility and strengthening exercises as part of their rehabilitation to ensure an optimal outcome. The treating physiotherapist can advise which exercises are most appropriate and when they should be commenced. Particular emphasis needs to be placed on strengthening the finger and hand muscles to improve stability of the affected joint.

Patients with a dislocated finger usually benefit from following the R.I.C.E. Regime. The R.I.C.E regime is beneficial in the initial phase of the injury (first 72 hours) or when inflammatory signs are present (i.e. morning pain or pain with rest). This should primarily involve resting from aggravating activities, regular icing, and elevating the affected arm (above the level of the heart). Heat, alcohol and massage should also be avoided in the initial 72 hour period following injury or when inflammatory signs are present. Anti-inflammatory medication may also benefit those with a dislocated finger by reducing the pain and swelling associated with inflammation.

In the final stages of rehabilitation for a finger dislocation, a gradual return to activity is indicated as guided by a physiotherapist provided there is no increase in symptoms. This often involves the use of Protective Taping, particularly upon resumption of ball sports or contact sports.

Prognosis of a dislocated finger

Many patients with a dislocated finger heal well with appropriate physiotherapy and return to normal function. This may take weeks to months to achieve an optimal outcome. However, due to the severity of injury and severe connective tissue damage associated with this condition, some patients may experience long term effects such as ongoing pain, stiffness, swelling or instability of the affected finger.

Some patients with this condition may also require surgery. This is particularly common in cases of recurrent finger dislocation, or in cases with associated fractures or tendon damage. This is usually followed by an extensive rehabilitation program lasting many months.

Patients with a dislocated finger who also have damage to other structures such as cartilage, bone or nerves are likely to have a significantly extended rehabilitation period to gain optimum function.

Physiotherapy for a dislocated finger

Physiotherapy for a dislocated finger can hasten the healing process, ensure an optimal outcome and reduce the likelihood of recurrence. Treatment may comprise:

  • soft tissue massage
  • electrotherapy (e.g. ultrasound)
  • anti-inflammatory advice
  • joint immobilization
  • joint mobilization
  • Finger Taping
  • finger bracing or splinting
  • ice or heat treatment
  • exercises to improve flexibility and strength
  • education
  • activity modification advice
  • a gradual return to activity program

Other intervention for a dislocated finger

Despite appropriate physiotherapy management, some patients with a dislocated finger do not improve adequately and require other intervention. When this occurs the treating physiotherapist or doctor can advise on the best course of management. This may involve hand therapy, pharmaceutical intervention, corticosteroid injection, further investigation such as an X-ray, CT scan or MRI, or a review by a specialist who can advise on any procedures that may be appropriate to improve the condition. Some patients with certain types of finger dislocations, those with severe injuries or those with associated fractures may require surgical intervention to ensure an optimal outcome.

Exercises for a dislocated finger

The following exercises are commonly prescribed to patients following the initial inflammatory phase and relocation of a dislocated finger. You should discuss the suitability of these exercises with your physiotherapist prior to beginning them. Generally, they should be performed 3 times daily after the initial immobilization period following joint relocation and only provided they do not cause or increase symptoms.

Hand Open and Close

Curl your fingers and thumb making a tight fist then straighten your fingers as far as possible pain-free (figure 2). Repeat 10 times provided there is no increase in symptoms.

Figure 2 – Hand Open and Close (right hand)

Finger Adduction to Abduction

Begin this exercise with your fingers together as demonstrated (figure 3). Spread your fingers apart as far as possible pain-free then return to the starting position. Repeat 10 times provided there is no increase in symptoms.

Figure 3 – Finger Adduction to Abduction (right hand)

Tennis Ball Squeeze

Begin this exercise holding a tennis ball (figure 4). Squeeze the tennis ball as hard as possible and comfortable without pain. Hold for 5 seconds and repeat 10 times provided there is no increase in symptoms.

Dislocated finger – Hand – Manchester Physio

What is a dislocated finger?

A dislocated finger is a common injury characterised by tearing of the connective tissue surrounding one of the finger joints, due to excessive forces placed on the finger, which causes displacement of the bones, so they are no longer situated next to each other.

Damage to other structures such as tendons and bones may also occur as a result of a finger dislocation.

Above: Therapist soft tissue massage of the metacarpals and connective tissues in the hand

What causes of a dislocated finger

Dislocated fingers commonly occur in sporting activities such basketball, netball, cricket or football, when a specific incident bends the finger forcefully in the wrong direction (such as a hyperextension force or a sideways force). A direct blow to the point of the finger or a collision with another player may also cause a dislocation.

What are the symptoms/effects of a dislocated finger?

Symptoms of a dislocated finger include sudden onset of intense finger pain during the acute incident. This may be accompanied by a visible bump or deformity, swelling and bruising. These symptoms may be made worse by everyday activities such as opening jars or doors, writing, picking up objects and gripping.

Diagnosis of a dislocated finger

A thorough subjective and objective examination from a physiotherapist or a doctor will confirm a diagnosis of a dislocated finger. X-rays are also taken to rule out fractures and assist with diagnosis.

90,000 Finger dislocation – signs, causes, symptoms, treatment and prevention


It is contraindicated to independently correct the dislocation. Consultation with a traumatologist is required to avoid incorrect fixation of the connecting surfaces.

As first aid, remove all obstructive items (jewelry, gloves, rings). Ice wrapped in cloth or another source of cold should be applied to the sore spot, and the place should be fixed with a bandage to eliminate the likelihood of further injury.Give the person a dose of anesthetic that is appropriate for age and weight.

It is advisable to correct the position of the articulation before the formation of soft tissue edema. Plaster is applied for two to three weeks. In some cases, conservative therapy is ineffective, surgical intervention is indicated.

In the presence of massive edema, an old process, surgery on the tendons or joint plastic is required.

Rehabilitation after the intervention begins immediately after the removal of the plaster cast and is under the supervision of an orthopedist.At first, it is recommended not to carry out active actions and excessive loads on the injured finger. You need to engage in daily physical therapy. The use of local anti-inflammatory drugs (ointments, gels, creams) is also recommended.

If the recommendation is ignored, mobility is limited, which becomes the root cause of chronic pain.


This is a very common injury among professional athletes (basketball, volleyball, when the ball hits the tip of the finger, falls).

The basis of prevention is the observance of safety measures when playing sports. If you fall, it is advisable to do this not on open palms, as this increases the risk significantly. You should not overload the limbs with exorbitant loads.

    90,000 Dislocation of the big toe

    Symptoms of a dislocated big toe are one of the many causes for big toe pain. The walk is not fun, the unimaginable pulsation that turns your day into a gray one. Some of the reasons these dislocated big toe symptoms appear are soft tissue trauma, direct impact, or ligament rupture.

    Traumatic fractures can also cause bone displacement in the big toe. Our foot is made up of bones, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. A change in the normal position of the bone leads to its dislocation. Severe injury can also be from sports. Consider yourself lucky if your sprained big toe symptoms are not severe. It can still be cured by natural therapy; however, if a dislocated bone breaks down abruptly, you will need strict medical attention.


    When we walk every day, we ignore our toes until we catch an injury. After that, some changes may occur. You will notice something strange. At the very moment of injury, you can hear a crackling sound. Now this part of the leg may be too painful. Pain medications will serve as your best friend for the moment. When you examine your thumb after an injury, you can see some changes in its appearance.The abnormal shape usually becomes visible, but this is not always the case. It all depends on how it happened. Counting a few hours or a day, a bruise is likely to appear too. Swelling is also one of the typical dislocated symptoms of the big toe, due to the fact that some of the tissue has been pulled out.

    How to fight

    The dislocated bones are too delicate, and one mistake can lead to a more serious condition. This is why you need an expert to get your treatment started right.

    Regardless of the fact that your injury was not so severe, it is imperative that you examine your finger.A physical assessment of your big toe is highly recommended when determining the severity of a dislocation. X-ray examination is often required once.

    Surgery is also an option to realign the bone. This is done when the situation really asks for it. This is to prevent future problems that may arise later. The dislocation should be reduced as quickly as possible. This would stop the possibility of damage to muscles and other bones near him.It’s not like being conscious of what’s going on in your body, if you can prevent some big damage that’s already a big help. This will save you a lot and it will allow you to enjoy bumping the road again with your sprained big toe, the symptoms are already gone. round-the-clock loans to the card without refusals

    How to treat a dislocated toe?

    A toe sprain occurs when the ligaments that connect the bones at the joint of the toe are damaged by a direct impact, twisting motion, or other unnatural movement.The foot is active whenever someone walks or otherwise moves while standing, so treating a sprained toe can be challenging as part of the treatment involves immobilizing the toe to prevent the injury from worsening. Ice should be applied immediately after injury to swell and lift the foot to prevent pain and swelling. A sprained toe injury will take days to weeks to heal, depending on how much rest the victim can get.

    RICE is often very effective in treating a dislocated toe. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Squeeze and Rise. Rest allows the ligaments to heal naturally, while ice can relieve pain and reduce swelling. Squeezing can also relieve pain and reduce swelling, although squeezing on a toe can be challenging unless the injured toe is a big toe. The elevation improves blood circulation in the wound and can prevent excessive swelling.While this can be difficult, it is important to try to neutralize the injured toe as much as possible. This could mean just staying on your feet and resting a lot, or it could mean sticking your injured toe to another toe next to it to restrict movement. Any gluing or squeezing must be done very carefully so as not to injure the toe.

    Recovery from a dislocated toe can take days to weeks. Once the pain begins to subside, the ligaments need to be restored for strength and mobility, which means that the sufferer will have to start doing leg exercises and light walking.During these exercises, it is important to pay close attention to the sprained toe; if the exercise becomes painful, it should be stopped immediately. Supportive shoes should be worn when walking and exercising, and women should avoid wearing high-heeled shoes until the toe is completely healed.

    If pain persists for several days or weeks, or if the pain is so severe after injury that the victim cannot function normally, it may be worth seeing a doctor.Ligaments can rupture just like muscles, and if the ligament is in a stretched tear on your toe, your doctor may recommend surgery to repair it. Surgery is usually considered a last resort, although only a doctor can determine the best course of action.


    90,000 Finger dislocation home treatment

    Dislocation is the displacement of the articular surfaces of the bones that are in contact.Dislocation is always painful and temporary loss of normal functionality of the damaged area. Quite often, you can find a dislocation of the lower jaw or finger. Most often, the thumb and forefinger are affected. However, other fingers may also be injured. Dislocations of the fingers constitute 16-18% of cases.

    So, a complete dislocation of the finger occurs when the ligaments are torn and the contact between the contacting surfaces is lost. Dislocations, depending on the direction, are to the back and outer side of the palm.If we are talking simply about stretching the ligaments, they talk about subluxation.

    Dislocation of a finger – the reasons why it occurs

    Dislocation of a finger often occurs as a result of a fall on the palm, if the first finger of the metacarpophalangeal joint is abducted. In this case, the head of the phalanx is dislocated to the back of the hand, and the metacarpal bone is displaced to the palmar surface. 2-5 fingers are damaged by forcible overextension in the interphalangeal or metacarpophalangeal joint. Also, a dislocation of the thumb can occur when hitting its tip – for example, when playing basketball, volleyball.

    Symptoms of finger dislocation

    When a finger is dislocated, the victim has the following symptoms:

    • Soreness of a dislocated finger, extending to the entire hand. The pain increases when you touch the damaged area.
    • Deformities are visible in the affected joint.
    • The finger springs during passive movement.
    • Flexion and extension of the finger is difficult or impossible.
    • The damaged joint is swollen.
    • Skin hyperemia is observed.
    • There is a feeling of numbness or tingling.
    • The dislocated phalangeal heads of the fingers can be felt on the back of the hand, the heads of the metacarpals – on the palmar.

    X-ray examination is mandatory to exclude finger fractures.

    Dislocation of a finger, home treatment

    If there is a ring on the injured finger, it must be removed immediately. The arm should be kept in an elevated position to improve blood flow and prevent severe swelling.The injured finger must be bandaged to the adjacent healthy one, thus ensuring its immobility. Apply a cold heating pad, previously wrapped in a towel, to the damaged area. You can take pain relievers, according to the acceptable dosage.

    After these actions, the victim must be taken to the trauma center, where the doctor, on the basis of a thorough external examination and radiography, will determine the methods of treating the dislocation. Reduction is carried out under local anesthesia, after which the finger is fixed to the lusarpal joint with a splint for about 2 weeks.At this time, physiotherapy is additionally carried out.

    After removing the fixing bandage, the patient is assigned a massage aimed at developing movements. You will need to do the exercises for several hours a day until the pain during movement disappears completely and the functionality of the finger is restored.

    Timely referral to a specialist is a prerequisite, since outdated dislocations are much more difficult to treat. And if within 7 days the dislocation was not reduced, a false joint may form and then it will be necessary to restore not only the joint, but also the ligamentous apparatus.

    Preventing the dislocation of the finger on the hand is quite problematic. People involved in sports such as volleyball, basketball are advised to apply an elastic bandage to the area of ​​the thumb and hand during training.

    90,000 Dislocation of the finger: treatment in hospital and at home, symptoms of displacement of the little finger (5), large (1) segment of the hand

    Fingers – part of the hand, distal segment of the upper limb. Adapted for gripping, holding objects, performing coordinated movements.An important function is tactile sensitivity, the ability to perceive mechanical stimulation, to determine the properties of objects by touch.

    A dislocation of a finger deprives a person of the ability to perform movements with a hand, causing disability and disability.

    What to do: first aid

    For injuries of the hand and fingers, first aid is provided in full, taking into account possible severe injuries – fractures, ligament ruptures, fragmentation of bones.The following activities are carried out:

    1. identify and eliminate life-threatening conditions – traumatic shock, bleeding, heart failure;
    2. call an ambulance;
    3. suggest the patient to take painkillers and sedatives;
    4. perform transport immobilization of the injured limb;
    5. ice or a vessel with cold water is applied to the site of damage;
    6. take measures for urgent delivery of the victim to a medical facility.

    The likelihood of shock with an isolated dislocation of the phalanx of the finger on the hand is small.

    Lack of consciousness, weak pulse, inappropriate behavior (excessive agitation or lethargy) – symptoms of shock.

    Before the arrival of the ambulance team, ask the patient to take painkillers and heart medications – Paracetamol, Aspirin, Analgin, Corvalol, Valocordin. It is necessary to warm the victim, give him tea. When excited – to calm down, distract from the incident, ask questions, while assessing the adequacy of the answers.

    Life-threatening bleeding occurs when there is a concomitant injury to the hand. Blood loss can be significant, fatal. It is necessary to apply a tourniquet in the lower third of the forearm, a temporary measure – finger pressure of the vessel.

       IMPORTANT!  At the scene , attempts to reposition bones, movements in damaged joints, rough manipulations are unacceptable. .  

    Immobilization is a prerequisite for the treatment of dislocated toe.The victim is transported to a medical facility as soon as possible, as over time, swelling increases, squeezing of tissues in the area of ​​dislocation, which makes it difficult to reposition.

    Scallop dressing

    Transport immobilization is carried out with standard Cramer tires, in the absence – with improvised means. Fix a board, plywood, tree branches with bandages from the elbow to the fingertips of the appropriate size. Additionally, arm is fixed with a scarf bandage .A piece of dense fabric (measuring 1×1 meter) is folded diagonally, brought under the arm, the ends are tied around the neck. Cold is applied to the site of damage.

    Characteristics and causes of pathology

    The hand consists of three parts – the wrist, metacarpus and fingers, which (except for the first) consist of 3 phalanges – proximal (closer to the center), middle, distal (nail). The first has two bones – proximal and distal.

    The joints of the finger

    The metacarpophalangeal joints are formed by the spherical heads of the metacarpals and the indentations at the base of the proximal phalanges.Flexion, extension, abduction are possible in the joints. The interphalangeal joints are block-shaped, flexing at the joint.

    A prerequisite for the normal functioning of the bone joints is the coincidence, congruence of the contacting surfaces. Dislocation – displacement of the bones that form the articulation, relative to each other. Distinguish between complete divergence and incomplete (subluxation of the finger), when the articular surfaces are partially in contact.

    Subluxation and complete dislocation

    Distinguish between post-traumatic and pathological dislocations (due to joint diseases).In the direction of the displaced bones – dorsal, palmar and lateral. Depending on the time – fresh (up to 3 days after injury), stale (up to 3-4 weeks), old (over a month). The diagnosis is formulated by the name of the distal (located further from the center) phalanx and the name of the finger – from the first to the fifth.

    Habitual dislocation – bone shift occurs repeatedly, with little physical effort.

    The displacement of the articular surfaces of the bones occurs when overextension, exceeding the permissible range of motion.Dislocation occurs when falling on an outstretched arm with an emphasis on the palm, direct blows to the wrist and fingers, punches on a hard surface.

    Displacements of the middle and nail phalanges occur when the hand is pinched by moving mechanisms in production, in the door of the bus. In sports, hand and finger injuries, including dislocations, account for 20%. The reason is the wrong exercise technique, non-observance of the doctor’s recommendations for sports medicine.

    General symptoms: how to determine dislocation

    Patients complain of pain, swelling in the area of ​​the damaged joint, loss of function, limitation of limb mobility.On examination, an unnatural position of the finger is determined. With subluxation, the symptoms are less pronounced.

    Dislocation of the finger

    The joint is deformed, the external bony landmarks are displaced. Active movements in the joint are not possible. Passive are sharply painful. If the neurovascular bundle is damaged, the nail plate acquires a bluish tint, the skin sensitivity of the flesh of the finger on the distal phalanx is disturbed. The symptom of “springy resistance” is determined – when pressed, the dislocated bone is displaced, after the cessation of pressure, it returns to its original position. This feature allows you to distinguish a dislocation from a fracture.

    Hammer toe

    Dislocations of the middle and nail phalanges are characterized by a thickening of the toe due to the mutual displacement of the bones, which is enhanced by edema. Symptoms depend on the damage to the extensor tendon of the toe. In case of rupture, the nail phalanx is bent, it is not possible to unbend, the finger acquires a characteristic hammer-like shape.

    Elderly patients may have short-term loss of consciousness, drop in blood pressure, heart rhythm disturbances.

    In patients with a dislocated finger, it is necessary to control the functions of vital organs – measurement of blood pressure, pulse rate.

    Thumb trauma

    The first finger is opposed to the rest, located perpendicular to the palm. This anatomical feature enhances the functionality of the hand and enhances the grip and retention of objects.

       THIS IS INTERESTING!  The Roman emperor Julius Caesar ordered the thumbs off of prisoners.Without it, they were unable to hold the sword, but they could row the oars in the galleys.  

    Dislocation of 1 finger of the hand (the first metacarpophalangeal joint) is a frequent injury. With dorsal dislocations , the phalanx moves to the rear, and the head of the metatarsal bone moves to the side of the palm. This restrains the flexor tendon. Palmar dislocation occurs when a fall on an arm with bent fingers. A direct mechanism of injury is possible – a blow to the hand. The head of the metacarpal bone is palpable on the dorsum, the proximal phalanx on the palm.

    Dislocation of the thumb

    The first toe is shortened, as if “inserted” into the hand (with dorsal displacement of the bones). The proximal phalanx is over-extended, looks like a “gun trigger”, is located at right angles to the palm, palpable on the dorsum of the hand, the head of the metacarpal bone – on the palm. The nail phalanx is bent. An attempt to straighten is sharply painful. If the patient has a subluxation of the thumb , then passive movements with outside help are possible with a limited amplitude.

    Dislocations of the nail phalanx of the first finger are rare. Characterized by the displacement of the bone to the rear, damage to the nail, the formation of a subungual hematoma. The joint is thickened due to displacement of the bones. If there is damage to the ligaments, then the separation of a piece of bone from the edge of the phalanx is diagnosed.

    Little finger

    The fifth toe has weak ligaments, small bones. Dislocation of the 5th finger of the hand occurs when the palm is struck on a hard surface or when an attempt is made to hold a person by the hand.Little finger is injured in playing sports volleyball, handball, rugby.

    With dislocation of the metacarpophalangeal joint, a dorsal displacement of the phalanx occurs. The joint is deformed, edema develops. The head of the fifth metacarpal bone is palpated on the palm of the hand, the base of the phalanx is on the back of the hand.

    Dislocation of the little finger (lateral displacement)

    Dislocation of the middle phalanx of the little finger on the hand, due to weakness of the ligamentous apparatus, also occurs laterally. The finger acquires an unnatural position.The edema is large. The base of the displaced phalanx forms a protrusion that is easily palpable under the skin (with dorsal dislocation of the middle or nail bone).

    Joints of other fingers

    Dislocations of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the index finger are the second most frequent. The head of the metatarsal bone damages the joint capsule, the base of the phalanx, shifting to the back. The finger is shortened, the diameter in the area of ​​the damaged joint increases.If the patient has a dislocation of the middle or nail phalanx, then the ligament comes off along with a piece of bone, and avulsion fractures occur.

    In cyclists, hand injuries are an occupational injury due to stress on the arms with an emphasis on the handlebars. Make up 26% of the number of damages. Dislocations of the 3rd and 4th fingers occur when falling, colliding with other athletes. Symptoms characteristic of dislocations occur – pain, deformation of the joint, edema. The dislocated phalanges are displaced to the back, lateral shifts are possible.If the tendon of the extensor muscle has been torn off, then a bent nail phalanx is noted.


    After providing first aid, transporting the victim to a medical facility, the dislocation is adjusted. The manipulation is performed by a traumatologist under local or general anesthesia. Reduction of dislocation of the thumb is carried out in 3 steps:

    1. perform traction along the axis simultaneously with overextension;
    2. displace the base of the phalanx towards the head of the metacarpal bone;
    3. Bending the finger, align the articular surfaces of the bones.
    Stage 1
    Stage 2
    Stage 3

    Reduction of the interphalangeal joints is performed under local anesthesia. Traction is performed along the finger axis and the dislocated bones are aligned. A plaster cast is applied from the elbow to the fingertips for 3 weeks, the therapy is continued on an outpatient basis. Indications for continuing treatment in the hospital:

    • failed 2–3 reposition attempts;
    • old dislocations;
    • Combination of displacement of the phalanges with a rupture of the flexor tendon of the finger, an avulsion fracture of the bone.


    The reason for the unsuccessful reduction of fresh dislocations of the fingers is the interposition (wedging between the displaced bones) of the flexor tendon of the finger, fragments of the capsule, soft tissues. If the patient has chronic dislocation, the phalanges cannot be repositioned due to scarring, fibrous deformation of the joint.

    Neutral lines

    Open reduction operation of finger dislocations is performed under general anesthesia. The incisions are made along the “neutral lines” – the areas of the lateral surfaces of the fingers that do not stretch or move when moving the fingers.Postoperative wounds heal by primary intention, scars are hardly noticeable.

    If is fresh dislocation , then tendon interposition is removed, displaced bones are matched manually.

    During the operation, the tendons welded together and other anatomical structures are separated, and the fine motor functions of the phalanges of the fingers are restored. Immobilization after operations with a plaster cast continues for 3 weeks.

    Do you need an operation

    Question from the area of ​​ deontology – medical ethics, the science of the relationship between medical workers and patients, doctors among themselves, the most complex clinical discipline.The effectiveness of many treatments is based on patients’ belief in their effectiveness.

    The patient’s confidence in the professionalism of the doctor, the effectiveness of the methods prescribed by him is a component of the treatment. The influence of the human psyche on the course of bodily diseases is studied by a special science – psychosomatic medicine.

    The operation is necessary if the doctor you trust thinks so.

    At home

    Outpatient therapy is indicated for successful closed reduction of the displaced bones, after the completion of the surgical stage.Home treatment has a number of advantages over inpatient treatment: staying in a familiar environment, free movement, individual nutrition, care of loved ones.

    Drug therapy is continued on an outpatient basis. Pain relievers are taken – Paracetamol, Aspirin, Analgin. Ointments with analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties are effective – Analgol, Dolgit, Ketonal.

    At home, there are more opportunities for rehabilitation – the restoration of the functions of damaged joints.At that stage of treatment, physiotherapy exercises are of particular importance. The following exercises are performed at home:

    • flexion, extension of the fingers;
    • object retention;
    • Reaching the base of the little finger with the tip of the thumb.

    Massage complements physiotherapy exercises. Kneading, rubbing of the injured joint is performed.

       IMPORTANT!  Kinesiotherapy (exercise therapy and massage) is carried out according to individual programs under the supervision of a physician for rehabilitation treatment. 

    At home, joint dislocation is treated and folk remedies . A thick dough of rye flour and vinegar, which is applied to the sore joint, helps. Promote healing tinctures and decoctions from wormwood leaves, bryony root, tansy flowers. Powders from dried plants in the amount of 1 tablespoon are brewed with a glass of boiling water, infused for an hour. Used for lotions and compresses.

    Crossed fingers

    Healing of a dislocated toe does not guarantee good functional results of treatment. Inaccuracy in setting the displaced bones, angular displacement of the phalanges – the cause of “crossed fingers” . Elimination of pathology is possible with repeated surgery, complex plastic surgery.

    A growth on the finger joint after dislocation is a manifestation of the body’s reparative response aimed at healing the damage.Benign education, without symptoms, surgical treatment. Patients with this pathology need the advice of a traumatologist or orthopedist. If the bone growth is small, does not increase, does not bother the patient, then there are no indications for treatment.

    Contracture of the interphalangeal joints – restriction of movement due to scars, fibrotic changes in the joint, wrinkling of the capsule, ligaments. Prevention and treatment – early use of exercise therapy, massage, physiotherapy.Drug treatment is carried out with drugs that stimulate the healing processes – Pyrogenal, Prodigiosan, Aloe, FIBS. Surgical treatment is used – excision of scars, release of ligaments from adhesions.


    Fingers have many functions. It is the organ of labor and touch. They are called “the eyes of the hand”, the blind read with the hand, the dumb speak with gestures. Without fingers, a person is not capable of self-service, performing work and professional duties. Dislocation is an injury in which qualified treatment is of particular importance.

    It is possible to avoid disability if the following rules are followed:

    1. Every person, regardless of profession, must be proficient in emergency medical care. Be able to recognize and respond to life-threatening conditions.
    2. It is necessary to apply an immobilizing bandage in case of injuries of the musculoskeletal system.
    3. It is recommended to be examined and treated in specialized institutions.
    4. Unsuccessful attempt at closed reduction, complicated, chronic dislocation – indications for surgical treatment in a hospital.
    5. The operation must be performed by a specially trained surgeon.
    6. Home treatment has a number of advantages over inpatient treatment. Outpatient therapy is carried out with a successful closed reduction of a fresh dislocation.

    Dislocations of the humerus in the shoulder joint

    The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the human body, because it can move in all three planes. The joint itself consists of the articular surface of the scapula (glenoid cavity), the head of the humerus, which absolutely corresponds to the cavity in shape and the clavicle.The head of the humerus is anchored in its proper position thanks to the cartilaginous ridge, which is located along the edge of the glenoid cavity, and the connective tissue that forms the articular capsule. The muscles and tendons that surround the joint provide stability and strength.

    But it is precisely this mobility that is the culprit for dislocations and injuries of the shoulder (due to the fact that the contact area of ​​the articular surfaces is small). Dislocation of the shoulder is a violation of stability in which, as a result of physical impact, the head of the humerus falls out of the glenoid cavity.Dislocations of the humerus in the shoulder joint are anterior (most common), posterior and inferior (depending on the direction of displacement of the humeral head).

    The main causes of shoulder dislocations.

    • Injuries sustained by falling on an outstretched arm or direct hit to the shoulder
    • Congenital malformations of joints and bones (hypermobility, etc.)
    • Frequent monotonous rotational movements that are repeated for a long time (mostly typical for athletes)

    Signs of dislocation.

    • Acute pain in the shoulder area (in case of primary dislocation, the victim from a sharp pain may faint with vomiting and nausea)
    • Limitation of joint mobility
    • Obvious deformity of the shoulder joint
    • The slightest hand movements cause severe pain
    • Loss of sensation in the shoulder and hand
    • Tissue edema in the area of ​​dislocation


    Diagnosis of dislocation includes a detailed examination of the patient, palpation of the damaged joint and the appointment of radiography in two projections of the damaged joint.Using the obtained X-ray, the doctor identifies the type of dislocation, whether there is a fracture, and is determined with the method of reduction. In more serious cases, the doctor may prescribe computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging to clarify the diagnosis. In the presence of serious injuries, a consultation with a surgeon is necessary.


    Treatment of dislocations of the humerus.

    To restore normal performance of the shoulder joint, the victim must be urgently taken to the traumatology department, where he will be provided with qualified assistance.

    In case of shoulder dislocation, treatment takes place in several stages.

    1. Anesthesia (local or general anesthesia, as determined by the doctor)
    2. Reduction of dislocation (conservative or operative, according to indications)
    3. Immobilization (additional fixation of the reduced dislocation with bandages or plaster cast, duration 3-6 weeks)
    4. Taking painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs
    5. Rehabilitation

    Recovery after shoulder dislocation.

    Rehabilitation measures take place in several stages. At the initial stage, in the first week after the injury, the patient is shown rest with restriction of any actions in the shoulder joint, cold compresses are applied, the doctor prescribes electrophoresis. It is recommended to carry out a gentle warm-up of the hands and wrists (to exclude further atrophy of the arm muscles). At the next stages, there is a gradual strengthening of exercises for developing the hand (a set of exercises is selected individually for each patient), various physiotherapy procedures are prescribed.By strictly following all the recommendations of the attending physician, continuing to engage in gymnastics to develop the joint and observing basic safety requirements, serious consequences can be avoided (for example, repeated dislocation, etc.)
