Broken finger 2+ months ago. Ring finger at the tip. Splinted for 3 weeks. Still hurts to bend all the way or pinch with it. Should it still hurt? Why

Joknt

Finger_fracture
It does take some time to heal of course. However, an X-ray should demonstrate whether or not the fracture is healing, healed, or involves the joint. If its not healed or involves the joint it could still be painful.

How can a broken finger heal?

Immobilize

Finger_fracture
In an uncomplicated finger fracture, healing only requires immobilizing the fingerr (with a finger splint) for 4-6 weeks.

Dr. Richard Tholen answered:

How can I fix my broken finger?

Xray and MD.

Arthritis
Proper diagnosis and treatment (splint, tape, or possible surgery) may be necessary for best long-term outcome. Self-diagnosis and non-treatment often leads to permanent loss of function and later arthritis problems in the damaged digit. The person who treats themself has a fool for a patient.

Dr. Robert Gluck answered:

How can you treat a broken finger?

Depends on break

Forearm_fracture
Very much depends on the details. At its most basic all fractures need to have the pieces in the right place (so-called reduction, if they are out of place) and then held in place (so-called fixation) Reduction can mean anything from leaving the fracture as is to closed manipulation to open surgery. As to fixation this can be anything from a splint to cast to plating, pins and screws.

Can i have my broken finger reset?

Yes, multiple ways

Finger_fracture
Depending on the timing to present to a doctor, most fractures can be set by manipulation within 7-10 days. If longer than that time, or if inadequately reducible (set), surgery may be required to move interfering soft tissue and secure by casting, pinning, screws and possibly plates. The less severe or the more rigidly fixed, can be "moved" earlier, which may avoid stiffness later after healing

Can you play rugby with a broken finger?

Any finger fracture

_42597283_jeremy_halse
may be stable enough or in a location that playing a sport is permitted but much depends upon the individual, what their role is, and the fracture. For example a minor finger tip fracture in and adult in a gloved sport such as hockey or lax vs a second row who cant grip and the whole scrum collapses. I guess the question is can YOU unzlershanrii play rugby with a broken finger...depends

Sprained or broken finger. How can I tell?

Can't really tell

Extremity-upper-fingers
You can't really tell for sure without an x-ray. Some sprains can be so painful that it mimics a fracture. However, if you have a fracture and it is not fixed properly, it can lead to permanent dysfunction of the joint or nerve injury (e.g. pain).

Dr. Toni E. Lin answered:

Can a broken finger cause balance problems?

Not directly

Thumb
The broken finger itself wouldn't cause imbalance, but sometimes the treatment can. A big, bulky splint or cast can alter the way patients carry the arm, which can throw them off balance. I actually see this in my practice quite often.!
