. I want to ask, so a few days ago my little finger got hit by a basketball and after that it turned blue and swollen. After an x-ray it turned out that there was a crack at the bottom of my little finger but after the finger on the side x-ray the crack was not visible. Do I still have to visit an orthopedic doctor for this or will it heal on its own?rnThank you in advance 🙂

Hello Sylvani Lumaela, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Cracks or fractures in the bones should always get an evaluation first from a doctor. There are various types of bone fractures. Broken bones in the fingers are sometimes accompanied by other disorders such as dislocations in the joints or disorders of the nerves and blood vessels. Therefore, you should still consult an orthopedic doctor for further evaluation and therapy.

If there is no total fracture or displacement of the bone, it is likely that the therapy will be done by placing a bandage on the fracture area to minimize movement and speed up healing. However, if there is a fracture in several places, there is a fracture, a shift that cannot be repaired from the outside, or there is a problem with blood vessels and nerves, then surgery may be needed. Discuss the treatment options you have with the doctor who examines you.

That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
