What's the difference between a Jammed and a broken finger?
i hurt myself during gym class by playing basketball. I was blocking and my pinkie hit the ball now i can't move my pinkie maybe a little but i can't squeeze my hand together. also it's staying curved i can't put it straight.

If it is broken it will hurt and you will be unable to move it since the bone will be broken. Jammed could mean where the bone is not broken yet it is stuck and sprained is where you can move it but it still hurts.

if your entire finger goes black and blue its broken


CRH
jammed just strains (like a sprain) but broken is where the bone has a crack or break, this sounds broken. Not much you can do for a broken finger but put it in a splint and let it heal.


ivgalero
broken is when your bone is on pieces
jammed can be everything else.


pomegranatepants
Um, a broken finger would have the actual bone broken. Duh. Otherwise it's just a sprain.


its a kodak moment
jammed finger is that it is still together but kind of crushed
broken finger is that the bone is not all together it might be in pieces


Alyson
well its not broken , and basically it heals faster.


Texas7
Sounds like it may be jammed. Either way you need to get it checked out. I jammed my finger when I was young. It is still curved out of place and not straight. Since I never got it fixed, it still is sore and cracks a lot.

probably jamed if it broke it wood feel like a red hot nail going through it beleive me


heyjoe
if it hurts as bad tomorrow get it checked out.

thats all you can do

The only way to tell if it is a break for sure is to have an x-ray taken.

Okay that said, when you break a bone usually you will have a moment of nausea because it hurts so bad. Also you won't be able to move that joint at all. Breaks will also swell but, I beleive that jammed fingers will jam as well.

If you feel it is a break you really need to go have x-rays taken of your hand.
