Finger Dislocation Symptoms & Diagnosis


Symptoms include:

  • Severe pain
  • Crooked or awkwardly bent finger
  • Swelling and bruising in the injured area
  • Numbness and/or tingling of the finger
  • Inability to bend or straighten the finger


The doctor will ask about your symptoms and how the injury occurred. The injured finger will also be examined.

Tests may include:

  • X-ray —a test that uses radiation to take a picture of structures inside the body, especially bones, to confirm that the finger is dislocated and not broken
