Hi :-) after a finger injury, how long will it take before I can do workout again? :-) (injury in 2 joints)
Take your time: You won't get flabby fast. If you jammed your finger and it still hurts, you should consider getting it x-rayed. You really can't tell if a finger is broken without the x-ray. If just jammed and x-rays are negative, you can resume wt lifting when you can hold the bar without much pain. Cardio is ok, but fingers take a long time to feel better. ...Read more

Can joints be restored after tissue injury, from cracking nuckles? And why is it painful to stretch my fingers out?
Get crackin: I am not sure that reliable evidence exists where cracking of knuckles causes tissue injury. Having said that, when joint tissue is damaged, it heals with generation of scar tissue.

Pain from stretching anything out could be from over exerting the stretch receptors or from existance of an underlying inflammation. ...Read more

When I move my finger a part by the joint gives a sharp pain (when touched too) no visual injury. Pain is lessening. Why does it hurt? How do I heal?
Finger pain: It's possible that the joint has been sprained by some action or overuse activities that you're not obviously aware of. I recommend avoiding stressing that finger, warm soaks, and, if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve (naproxen) should help. If the finger is reddened and swollen, infection or acute arthritis may be present and you should be evaluated by a physician. ...Read more
