How can you tell if a hand is broken after being closed in a door?

Xray. The only way to tell if a finger or hand is broken is to get an xray. I have seen patients who are very swollen and painfull that don't have a fracture and patients who have very little pain that do have a fracture. Most fractures a easily treated if caught early. See a hand surgeon and get an xray. Read more...
