Fingers have the highest risk for injury of all the parts of the hand. Your hand can be injured while working with tools such as a hammer and saw. Fast-moving objects that hit your hand (such as a baseball) and slamming your hand in a door can also break fingers. Broken fingers can also occur when putting out your hands to break a fall or when throwing a punch.
Whether a fracture occurs depends on the nature of the injury and the strength of the bone.
Conditions such as osteoporosis and malnutrition increase your chances of getting broken finger.
Weak bones have an increased risk of fracture. The elderly and people with calcium deficiency are at risk for broken fingers. Athletes and manual laborers have increased risk for broken fingers because of their activities.
Symptoms of a broken finger include pain, swelling, and tenderness. Your finger might also look misshapen or out of alignment (deformed). Broken fingers may be very painful, especially when you try to move them, but sometimes the discomfort is dull and tolerable. The absence of extreme pain does not mean that the fracture is mild or that it does not require medical attention.
So check with the doctor to take your medical history and do a physical examination. X-rays of the finger will usually make clear whether your finger is fractured.
A broken finger is treated according to where the fracture is located and whether it is stable. Taping the fractured finger to an adjacent intact finger may treat a stable fracture. Unstable fractures require immobilization
