Sprained Finger Treatment
- Finger dislocations and knocks are often referred to as a sprained finger. These are common in ball sports where a player or a ball disrupts the ligaments or the tendons in the finger joints. The finger can be bent backwards or sideways and may or may not be able to be put back in place. This might result in a volar plate ligament, mallet finger or collateral ligament injury.
- 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.
