If you have a finger injury in your workplace, it can be very difficult to know if your finger is broken, dislocated or just sprained. For all three the symptoms are the same:
How you can tell what the problem is with your finger
If your finger injury is a sprain, it means you have stretched the ligaments, the finger should not look deformed or bruised and the swelling and pain will eventually subside on its own. If your finger looks deformed, or if part of it is pointing in a different direction, you have probably broken or dislocated one of the bones in your finger, and it will need an x-ray to confirm which it is.
How your finger injury could occur
The most common way that your finger injury could occur is a sudden impact, from a fall or maybe from a punch. There are also lots of other ways you could break, dislocate or sprain your fingers, and if it was not your own fault you should be speaking with Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers.
The treatment for your finger injury
This is very general for the treatment of your finger injury and it depends on how bad the break or the dislocation is but the treatments include:
- Fixing the finger in a plaster cast
- In severe cases, surgery to insert wires, plates or screws to hold the bones together.
- Strapping the damaged finger to the one next to it (this is known as buddy taping)
- Fixing the finger in a splint
