At night, my hand on the pinkie shifted up because I was playing basketball. So my little finger is in the middle of the bone up like that (like a rainbow in shape), so it happened when I was playing basketball, my friend threw the ball at me and it really hit it on the front of his pinkie. It really hurt so I gave thrombophop gel, and the pain went away a little after a few days and that was me while massaging. The pain is gone but my bones are still shifting and it’s been almost a year and it’s still shifting but it doesn’t hurt. So, can it still be cured? By way of x-ray or can it be ordered by a serial engineer like that? Info please. N nThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Determining whether the arrangement of the bones in the fingers is still in position or if they are shifting should ideally be done directly by an experienced doctor. Not only through physical examination, the diagnosis of shifting bones also needs to be confirmed by radiological examinations, for example X-rays, CT scans, and so on. Therefore, it can't be arbitrary huh ..
The shifting (dislocated) finger bones will generally cause the sufferer to experience various complaints, such as:
Asymmetric finger shape
Limited movement, either due to pain, stiffness, or weakness
These complaints generally appear with a very great intensity that disturbs the sufferer in activities. Massaging the shifting bone area is strongly discouraged, especially if it is done by people who are not familiar with anatomy and physiology. This procedure is very risky of causing further injury to your fingers and making it more difficult to heal, especially if the previous injury caused a fracture, ligament tear, or other more serious damage.
The condition you are experiencing at this time can occur as a result of a finger injury that you experienced before, or it could be due to other causes, for example, a normal variation of the finger bones, arthritis (arthritis), malunion (abnormally broken bone fusion), gout uric acid), and so on.
As mentioned above, you should visit the doctor directly at the nearest health facility to find out exactly what condition your finger is like. If it is true that there is a shifting bone, the doctor can reposition it manually or maybe surgery.
Currently, we advise you not to massage the finger before it is declared safe by the doctor. If you feel an uncomfortable sensation on the finger, you can use a warm compress to relieve it.
Hope it helps ..
