Finger dislocations, or a “jammed” finger are incredibly common sports injuries. They occur routinely in athletes who play baseball, softball, basketball and football. Finger dislocation occurs when the bones in the finger are moved from their proper position. Dislocated fingers are treated by Dr. Nadel in his West Hills, CA and Westlake Village, CA offices. Treatments to alleviate the pain, and allow you to return to sports quickly may include icing the finger, over the counter pain medications, putting the finger in a splint, or taping the finger. X-rays may be required to confirm that the finger has not been broken.
