    Do dislocated fingers, thumb require follow up care?

    I was out of country and dislocated my little, ring finger and thumb. No fractures. The doctor reduced the joints and placed splints on the injured fingers, thumb. After this occurred, arriving home, I did see my GP. I asked if he would follow up on my injuries but he didn't seem interested.

    I've never dislocated joints before.

    Should I follow up with orthopedic hand specialist? The injuries occurred 10 days ago.

    If your GPdidn't do x rays here, I would at least do that to be sure. But, no, there's really no other reason for a dislocated joint. I did it to my right thumb several times as a pre teen and young teen and all they did was tape itfor 6 weeks and that was it.
