  • After injury, if pain or swelling limits the motion or use of the fingers, or if the finger becomes numb, seek medical care.
  • If the injury to the finger includes a laceration, crushed tissue, or exposure of bone, the individual should go to an emergency department for immediate medical care.
  • Some fractures of the fingers may be subtle, and the pain may be tolerable, so if a finger fracture is suspected, seek medical attention.
