    Dislocated Finger

    OK..
    Long story short..dislocated my left ring finger tonight while blocking a side kick in sparring. First time I have had an injury like this, busted fingers but never dislocated one before. The X- ray showed that a bone fragment chipped off my finger bone and If it doesn't heal properly I may need to get surgery to pull the bone fragment out. Doesn't really hurt, but when the doctor asked me if I wanted some Tylenol 3's I couldn't refuse.. hehe
    No sparring or knuckle push ups for a t least a month, most likely.
    Any suggestions or advice on speeding up the healing process would be much appreciated.
    What a pain in the ass!

    Dude, if there is a bone fragment out, that's not a dislocation. That's a fracture!!! :P

    Rest, dude. Rest. There are small finger "casts" you can get at any pharmacy, which you can use to immobilize your finger while it heals.

    I like to soak my finger in wamr water to get the throbbing down. The best way to heal it is just not using it....unfortuneatly magic does not cover everything yet.

    Doctor re set it. I have go see a specialist next week and will have to keep a close eye on the healing..turns out a couple of ligaments on the little finger are torn too..
    I have it taped but not in a splint. Doctor said to start trying to bend it after a couple of days. It isn't a big deal..I was just wondering if anybody knew of any speedy healing tricks for this sort of injury. jow will help with the ligaments . Otherwise, just have to be patient.
    Of course, all the wife is worried about is how much this will hamper my ability to take care of the yard work..lol

    I received a similar injury a few years back, but it was in my left pinky finger. The bone chip was directly at the joint. My doctor prescribed vicodin, but I didn't ever fill it. The doctor put it in a splint, but it was really uncomfortable, to the point of causing my entire hand to throb, and it sort of cut off circulation in that finger, so I ditched it after a few days and just taped it.

    I spent the better part of 4 months doing surprisingly painful regular "stretching" to regain full function and mobility in it. The joint is still knobby, occasionally aches, and I'm sure will develop arthritis as I age, but at least I can fully extend and curl it.

    Biggest pain in the ass injury I've ever received.

    A friend of mine had his little finger broken in stick sparring. He didnt go to the doctor in ages and now he cant straighten that little finger or move it much. Its a bit painful and really had he done something immediately and worn the finger splint they gave him for the full period he'd be fine.

    I did the same thing, but not as bad from the sound of it. I taped it up and that was it. Maybe I should have bothered to go to the doctor because now it won't straighten all the way.

    I had a dislocated finger reset in the ER. I'll have to get surgery if I ever want it set properly. I hope an actual doctor set yours....

    Yeah, it was the attending physician. He even sent me for a second x ray afterwards to ensure it was done right.
