Treatment of a jammed finger

Use It or Lose It

Once you’ve done your due diligence making sure that everything is in line with your healing finger, try to use it normally so that it returns to its strength and ability. If you don’t use it, you may lose strength in the healing finger, or start to cause imbalances in your other fingers that could threaten injury. Most jammed fingers heal completely if there is no fracture or dislocation. If there is a fracture or dislocation, it can take months to heal. Pain may last months and the injured joint may be larger than those of uninjured fingers for even longer.
