Mr S from Nottingham was 37 years old when he fractured one of his fingers at work. The accident occurred when he was trying to replace the legs on a machine. His finger was left tender swollen and movement severely restricted. He needed to visit a physician on more than one occasion to ensure his finger received the right treatment.
A finger fracture is often considered a minor injury. However a fracture can cause major problems if it is left untreated. This is because the bones in a hand are perfectly lined up to allow the fingers and thumb to work properly. If this alignment is disturbed as in the case of a fracture it can cause long term pain and stiffness if it is ignored.
