Dislocated finger
Hi

I damaged my hand a while ago, the swelling has gone down and there is hardly any pain in all movements and pressure, however my one knuckle still seems a little swollen. I would just like to know how to check whether my knuckle may be dislocated?

Hi Gaz if you have full movement and full function it is unlikely to be dislocated, perhaps just a bit bruised on the joint.
