A ‘Jammed finger’ indicates a sprain, strain or a dislocation of a finger and needs to be carefully diagnosed. ‘Turf toe’ occurs when you bend your big toe beyond its limit of movement.
Many different things can cause both acute and chronic finger and toe pain. Most commonly, finger and toe pain is caused by acute trauma or injury. A “jammed finger” can be due to a sprain, strain, dislocation or even a fracture of a finger and needs to be carefully diagnosed. A common athletic cause of great toe pain can be “turf toe,” which occurs when you repetitively push off your extended big toe joint when running. This repetitive action can lead to a sprain of the ligaments that support the big toe joint and can be a chronic and debilitating injury.
