How long before full movement of a broken finger?

How long before full movement of a broken finger?

They get fixed!: Surgery for torn tendons and fractured bones repairs the damages. You will probably get immobilized and need physical therapy once cleared by your surgeon. Bones get fixed by either pins or plates and screws to hold the pieces together, allowing movement before it gets stiff. Stitches are used to repair cut tendons, which allow scar tissue to fully heal the tendon edges. Good luck. ...Read more

I have pain in upper forearm, top of forearm. Worst pain is triggered by movement of my fingers, but pain is present w/o movement. Is it a clot?

Forearm pain: While a blood vessel clot or ischemia is a possibility, conditions relating to the nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments are more likley to cause pain in the forearm. A nerve entrapment is a possibility. A physical examination by a doctor is needed to make a diagnosis. ...Read more

It'll be sore: You probably don't want to do too much with that hand until the pain dies down. Should take 2-3 days. If you keep using it, it probably won't injure you, but you sure will be sore. The more pain you have, the further it travels. ...Read more

Hi for over a week now my finger next to my thumb on my right hand keeps on twitching like a jerking movement like it tightens and spasms. Age 35?

Spasm: Many possible causes. If it's just that one finger, you may be developing a trigger finger which may be able to be cured or significantly helped by a properly placed steroid injection. If you are having spasms in other muscles in your body, other potential causes may be an electrolyte imbalance (potassium, calcium) or the onset of a neurological disorder, so see a doctor. ...Read more

Problem in movement of finger of right hand. What to do with momentarily clicking/locking?

Problem in movement of finger of right hand. What to do with momentarily clicking/locking?

Trigger finger: This is due to contracture of a fibrous pulley for the finger muscle and occasionally a swelling of the tendon. It can be minimized by elevating the limb which allows gravity to drain the fluid. But sometimes needs treatment with steroid injection or surgical release. See your hand surgeon for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

Crushed tip of finger, tip swollen, nail and underneath black, not much movement, but nail not damaged, tissue not broken. Should I splint it myself?

Yes: You can do that for a few days - ice it, keep it elevated, take ibuprofen. If blood collects under the nail you may need to see the doctor to have it drained. If there is pain past just the finger tip then I would see a doctor for an x-ray. ...Read more

Skin creases on finger (lower side&back)seem stretched/more evident, after 1month coban wrap (pip joint), while normal movement&stretching. What can I do?

Skin creases on finger (lower side&back)seem stretched/more evident, after 1month coban wrap (pip joint), while normal movement&stretching. What can I do?

The pip joint: Creases on top of the finger can go "missing" for a time if the joint is swollen and stiff. The skin there is very flexible and if the jointis bent a little or the joint is full the creases look different. The creases don't really strethc they just look different until time passesif and when / after the mechanics normalize. ...Read more

I punctured my hand with a small knife, just below the mid finger. The back of my finger is now mostly numb, but movement is fine. Can a dr. Do much?

Probably not: If the back of the finger is numb you probably injured a sensory nerve on the back of the finger. These nerves are not fixable. See a hand surgeon to make sure nothing else is wrong. ...Read more

Diagnosed with elbow tendonitis for two months. Experiencing tricep spasms and odd finger tip sensation. Is this more serious form or limited movement?

Diagnosed with elbow tendonitis for two months. Experiencing tricep spasms and odd finger tip sensation. Is this more serious form or limited movement?

Possibly: There are multiple nerves that pass through the elbow to the hand and they can become involved in the process. For example, golfer elbow is an inflammatory condition of the tendons and ligaments on the inside of the elbow; the ulnar nerve also is near that area and when this gets involved one can get numbness running into the fourth and fifth fingers. ...Read more

Fractured radius - why are my finger joints are very stiff each morning? Improves during the day with movement. How long will this last? Thanks

Swelling from break: The fracture causes inflammation, which impedes the normal flow of lymph from the hand to the arm and then into the central veins. Because of this slowdown, your fingers are a little swollen and feel stiff.

Elevating your arm, which gives the flow a boost from gravity, might help.

This is temporary, don't worry. ...Read more
