    Considerations

    Nearly everyone has injured a finger at sometime during their life. After an injury, the finger can remain a bit crooked or stiff. However, your hand can still work quite well with minor deformities. Fingers do not need to open or close completely to be functional.

    Numbness or tingling in the fingers may be a sign of a problem with nerves or blood flow.
