Dislocation of finger can be caused by a wide range of activities such as sports injuries, falls, and direct blows to the finger.
Diagnosis is based on physical examination and imaging studies such as X-ray or MRI.
Other conditions that may present with similar symptoms include fractures, tendon and ligament injuries, and joint sprains.
Treatment for a dislocated finger is typically non-surgical and includes immobilization, pain relief, and physical therapy. Surgery may be recommended in more severe cases.
The prognosis for a dislocated finger is generally good, though some patients may experience permanent joint damage or stiffness.
