Finger pain can be caused from minor cuts and scrapes to wounds with damage to bone, tendons and ligaments. Severe finger injuries can lead to permanent deformity. Your finger may become injured while playing contact sports like football, baseball or soccer, using machinery at work or home and doing repetitive movements that puts strain on fingers. Removing rings in case of swelling, resting the finger joints to heal and using pain relievers can ease the discomfort. X-rays and imaging tests are methods used to diagnose the underlying cause of finger pain.
