Dislocated Finger for 4 months!


It has been nearly 4(FOUR) months since I dislocated my finger playing football and it hasn't really shown much improvement over the time. I caught my finger in someone's shirt and my pinkie finger on my right hand was almost at a 90 degree angle. I went straight to the hospital, had it x-rayed, the doctor popped it back into place and arranged a follow up meeting within the week. After going back for the meeting, they basically made sure it was OK and re-strapped it up and said it should heal fine over time.

It has now been roughly 4 months since it happened it and I can only just bend my finger slightly but not even nearly enough to clench my fist. It only really hurts if I try to bend it or catch it on something but I would like the full use of my hand back with no fears of hurting myself. I have a feeling it should of healed by now but I'm just looking for some advice really.

Cheers, Ste
