If you injure your finger in an accident, the last thing you want is for it to be broken. Sometimes, people may try to downplay how injured their finger is in the hopes that the damage is not as bad as it feels. But ignoring a broken finger can just lead to more issues down the road.
If you have experienced a significant finger injury, there are a few telltale signs that the finger is fractured. Swelling around the area where the fracture may have occurred is a good indicator. Tenderness and bruising around the area also point to a fractured finger. You may be unable to move the injured finger, and there may be a deformity in the shape of the finger.
If you believe you have seriously injured your finger, the best thing you can do is seek medical assistance as soon as possible. At The Hand and Plastic Surgery Center of Katy, we can provide you with the professional care you need. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
