Fingers, or digits, are the organs that we as humans use to manipulate, feel and move the objects that we need to live.

The use of our fingers and thumb set us apart from other primates.

Each finger has 3 bones connected with a complex network of joints and ligaments. Ligament injury and joint dislocation can inhibit function in the short term but if managed well shouldn’t impact long term function.

Other injuries involving the fingers include fracture, mallet and trigger fingers. These are outlined in more detail via the buttons below.
