You have probably watched a scene in a TV show or movie where they fix a dislocated body part by popping it back in to place. Although these scenes make dislocations seem like they are simple to fix, a dislocate joint can be a major issue if the injury is severe.
Just like other parts of the body, the fingers and thumbs can become dislocated. Dislocations can occur as a result of a sports injury, automobile accident, or other accidents that cause major harm to the hands.
When a dislocation occurs, it is important that you immediately seek professional medical help. Some injuries may require surgery to correct and may become worse over time if not properly addressed.
At The Hand and Plastic Surgery Center of Katy, we can provide you with excellent care for minor and major injuries, dislocations, and fractures of the hand. Contact us today to schedule an appointment so you can receive the professional care you need.
