Mallet Finger

A mallet finger occurs when the tendon that straightens the end joint of the finger ruptures. A ball to the end of the finger is often the cause but sometimes something as simple as taking your socks off can result in a mallet injury. In some cases there may be a chip of bone as well. Therapy involves splinting the joint fully straight for 6-8 weeks. Therapists at Geelong Hand Therapy custom make mallet splints and also provide advice on mobilisation and return to sports.
