Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Your doctor will carefully examine the injured joint and check to see if the arm or hand is cold or numb, which would indicate entrapment of an artery or nerve. He or she will probably try to maneuver the bones back into place after looking at X-rays to make sure there are no broken bones in the joint.
