Broke thumb, pain, difficult to bend. What treatment should i prefer?
I broke my right thumb just above the knuckle below the nail about 5 weeks ago. I ve been trying to bend my thumb for a week but it won t bend and is really tight and painful if I try and force it. I m worried I won t be able to grip properly with my right hand . I can barely pick up my mobile using my thumb and no grip strength at all
May be there is hairline fracture ....first of all plz do xray and find out reason...if it then plz stoo movement of thumb for 15 days wih support of splint.... and take anti- inflamentry drugs wih it ...u will be feel better
