Jammed Fingers & Finger Injuries with Dr. Dale Cassidy
Welcome to a Medical Minute segment with Dr. Dale Cassidy, a Board-Certified Orthopedic Hand physician at the Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group. The video below will cover jammed fingers & finger injuries that we commonly see from our Colorado Springs clients.
Types of Finger Injuries
Sports injuries, falls, or hitting your finger the wrong way are some of the most common finger injuries seen here at Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group. These experiences can result in jammed, sprained, or even broken fingers.
Jammed Finger & Finger Injury X-Rays & Treatment
Dr. Cassidy and his team utilize various imagining such as x-rays as the first step in the diagnosis process. Often times a patient may think they have a jammed finger. However, the x-ray images can show a more serious diagnosis. Depending on the severity of the injury it could be treated with a splint or brace. More extreme injuries may result in the need for physical therapy or could even require surgery.
