A finger dislocation is a joint injury where the bones are no longer aligned normally. The bones in the fingers are phalanges and metacarpal bones. Every knuckle in the hands and fingers contains a joint between two of these bones, and any of these joints can be dislocated in an injury. The wrist contains eight small bones, called carpals. A network of ligaments holds them in place and allows them to move. A tear in any of these ligaments can result in two or more of your carpal bones being pushed out of their usual position, causing a dislocated wrist. Symptoms of hand dislocations include crooked and swollen fingers, pain, unstable and weak finger(s), and possible deformity. Symptoms of a wrist dislocation include severe pain, tingling, and obvious deformity.
