Usually normal...: Depending on the mechanism of injury (or how you hurt it), the findings may be normal. For example, jamming your finger while catching a football or basketball can cause injury to the ligamentous structures around the joints causing swelling, stiffness and pain. Symptoms should usually resolve within 6-8 weeks. If symptoms persist with minimal resolution, seek help from your primary doc.
