for dislocated finger—volar plate


A dislocation is when the two bones that form a joint shift away from each other. One bone can ‘pop’ out of joint, if it’s a ball-and-socket type joint. Or, in the case of a finger, one bone shifts off the saddle-type seat it is normally sitting in. A joint can dislocate and immediately ‘go back in’ or it can remain out of place, in which case, the finger will look misshapen or short. A bone may shift halfway out of place and then back again, and this is called a ‘subluxation’.
