Finger Fracture

A finger fracture is a break in one or more of the bones in the fingers.



  • The bones in the fingers are delicate and can be damaged from a trauma
  • A direct fall, a crush injury, or a sports-related injury.
  • Osteoporosis can also increase the risk of a finger fracture in older adults.


  • Pain and swelling in the affected area.
  • Difficulty moving the finger .
  • Obvious deformity in the finger's appearance.
  • Bruising or discoloration of the skin surrounding the affected area.


  • Finger fracture will depend on the type and severity of the fracture.
  • A simple splint or buddy-taping may be sufficient in simple cases
  • In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary to realign the bones.
  • Physical therapy will be recommended to restore strength and flexibility.

It is important to seek medical attention promptly if you suspect you have a finger fracture. Early diagnosis and treatment can help to minimize the risk of long-term complications and ensure a successful outcome. Finger fractures, if left untreated or improperly treated, can lead to permanent stiffness, weakness, and deformity of the affected finger.
