Thumb Sprain / Finger Fracture
How to differentiate between a thumb sprain and fracture?The patient can easily differentiate between a thumb sprain and fracture by noting the degree of disability he faces. A sprain usually involves the ligaments and eventually settles on its own if proper care is taken. There isn’t any need for surgical intervention in most of the sprains as minor ligament tears gradually heal over time. But in thumb fractures, the deformity is visible in plain sight, and refusal of early treatment may lead to complications or even complete loss of function of the affected thumb.
