Injury To Finger
Nerve damage: Sensation in the body is governed by nerve cells which run from the spine all the way to the tips of the fingers. That is why damage to the spine can affect sensation even in a finger tip. In general, the further away from the central nervous system (spine and brain) an injury occurs, the easier it is for it to heal. A spinal disc, pressing on a nerve, can be removed to help in some cases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Digit : Digit is the word doctors use to mean a finger or a toe. Each finger has several segments, each named a phalanx. The word for more than one phalanx is "phalanges". The joints between each phalanx is called an interphalangeal joint, and the fingers have two interphalangeal joints. The interphalangeal joint that is closer to the fingertip is called the distal interphalageal joint, or dip. The other interphalageal joint is called the proximal interphalageal joint, or pip. At the base of each finger are the knuckles, which doctors call the metacarpal phalangeal joints, or mcp. It is uncommon for a neurological problem to affect just one dip joint. More commonly, after an injury, this joint becomes fused or a tendon develops a contracture. Examination by a neurologist, hand surgeon, or occupational therapist (the kind of therapists that specialist in the hands) can determine the source of the problem. Once the source is identified, treatments, which might include surgery, other interventions, or medications can be chosen. ...Read more

Woke up with pain in right index finger most proximal knuckle. No injury. Hurts to bend finger,warmth and swelling but not much. Hairline fx? 2 days.
Get checked: In an otherwise healthy 20 year old, infection of the joint is high on the probability list. Was there a trauma? Without injury, fx far less likely. Get this checked urgently as long term damage is possible. If you have fever/nausea/chills or if swelling/pain is worsening, might even consider ER. Good luck! ...Read more

X-ray first...: With any finger injury you should have an x-ray to make sure that you don't miss a fracture, that may heal incorrectly. Once an x-ray is completed you will know if you need to individually splint the finger with something rigid, or if buddy taping is acceptable. Even with some fractures buddy taping is a good option, but this doesn't work for optimal healing of every finger injury. ...Read more
