How do you know if your finger is sprained

Sprained usually means soft tissue (sinew) damage to tendons or ligaments. If it hurts at a knuckle it's ligaments if somewhere in between could be a hairline fracture or a tendon sprain. If it's swollen and tender in one location you should consider an xray. Either way a popsicle stick splint in a good idea.
