Whatmay pass for "complete" mobility may seem to be ok but a discerning exam might reveal that there is in fact limitation of motion caused but the swelling. Intraarticular swelling can impede motion or lead to subtle loss of full extension or flexion. Of course finger swelling following trauma may just be a bad bruise if the pain continues it would be worthwhile getting an x-ray as knowledge of the injury whether it is a factor or not may be a guide to return to activity with or without care. If there is a negative x-ray and pain persists it may be worthwhile to see a hand surgeon.
