Finger Fractures In Young Children
A finger fracture is a crack or break in one or more of the bones of a finger. The break may be just a bend or small crack in the bone or the bone may be shattered, or broken into pieces. Some fractures break through the skin while others remain contained. Finger fractures in young children are challenging because they typically do not have the vocabulary or ability to fully describe what happened or what they are feeling.
