Default Dislocated finger

Anyone got any advice on dislocated fingers from personal experience or etc?

I'm worried that my finger,that is now put back in place, will never have the same range of motion ever again.

Never had a dislocated finger but two years ago I slammed my finger in my car door, I thought it was gonna fall off. Blood everywhere. I thought my finger would never be the same again. My nail has still never fully grown back (well at least it doesn't look like the other nails).

I dislocated my elbow and although the movement is pretty much back to normal, it hurts when it's cold or if it rains. The motion isn't the problem, it's the effects of the weather that you should worry about.

Perfect response. I don't know by personal experience but my father actually got his stuck in a dough flattener (don't know exactly what it's called, but it's two spinning metal bars on top of each each other and you put the dough in to flatten it) and pretty much crushed it. It's completely normal looking now and he has full range of motion, but he says it's still extremely painful when it gets cold, and this was over 5 years ago.

I dislocated both my shoulders when i was little. I was in a cast both times and no problems as of today.

My uncle dislocated his finger during a game once and popped it back in. Im not too sure what he did afterward, I dont think he saw doctor, but he continued playing. His finger is kinda sideways right now though.

I've dislocated two fingers, one really bad, the other not so bad. The one that was really bad, the middle knuckle somehow ended up almost near the fist knuckle, so they had to pull it up, pull it back, and pop it back in. That finger is permanently misshapen, as well. The other just kind of popped sideways accidentally, no big deal, I popped it back in no problem, but I have a limited motion with that finger, and it's probably my fault. I can move it about 35% less both ways than I used to be able to.

Weather doesn't affect my fingers, though.

I do however, have Osgood-Schlatter disease in both my knees, and the weather greatly affects it. In fact, It's almost intolerable sometimes. It's not a pain, really, it's more of an extreme 'cold' feeling. It's very uncomfortable.

Why don't you go to the doctor? There are ways to treat it...
