Conditions Treated

Dislocations

What is it?

Dislocations can be from forceful trauma to the finger or thumb joints, such as falls or direct trauma to the finger/thumb tip (e.g. ball forcefully hitting).

Symptoms

Dislocations can be very painful and cause bruising and swelling to the surrounding area. Dislocations can significantly impact movement of finger/thumb, as the smooth edges of the joints are not aligned appropriately.

After a dislocation it is important to seek medical attention to ensure the joint is appropriately relocated. Even once the joint is back in position, it is likely there may be sprain/tear to the surrounding ligaments that would require immobilisation in a custom-made splint to adequately heal.

If you have had a dislocated joint in your finger/thumb and are experiencing any of these symptoms, book an appointment.
