Should I see a doctor about skier's thumb?

ANSWER

If you have any symptoms of skier's thumb following an injury, call your doctor as soon as possible. Follow your doctor's instructions and find out when your thumb can be checked. If you can't reach your doctor, go to a hospital emergency room. There is no need to go by ambulance unless that is your only way of getting there or you also have a more serious injury.
