The doctor will realign the dislocated bones with a simple technique. This will often require a local anesthetic injection into the finger to help decrease or stop the pain and allow the doctor to reduce the dislocation and realign the bones. The patient may also receive medications by mouth, injection, or IV to help the pain and ease the reduction.
