Mallet Finger Treatment & Mallet Finger Splints
Mallet finger is the result of a rupture of the extensor tendon at the tip of the finger. It is usually caused by forced flexion of the tip or a laceration. A small splint to hold the tip straight can be worn for sport.
Mallet Finger is a condition often seen after sports-related trauma that causes the fingertip to droop, sometimes confused as a dislocation. This tendon injury can be difficult to treat and if treated poorly can lead to complications such as a swan neck deformity.
Action Rehab provides assessment and rehabilitation for patients who sustain this injury or are living with an untreated Mallet Finger condition.
