AnthonyM Posted July 6, 2016 Share Posted July 6, 2016 Hey Guy's I wanted to let you guy's know of an injury I experienced a couple of months ago.... an injury known as Mallet Finger. This is a snapped tendon within the finger. Unfortunately, in my case, the finger in question has not healed correctly, being bent forward at the first joint as well as being a little swollen. I've had to wear a plastic splint on it since, which was prescribed by an orthopedist. He advised that a slight droop at the first joint would be permanent, and that wearing the splint was a better alternative than surgery, since the outcome would be about the same. Well, it doesn't look like it's healed at all since day 1 and playing with the finger slightly taped up for support is very uncomfortable. Since it's more that a "little" droop, I'm planning on seeing another orthopedic surgeon regarding it. I just wanted to mention it to you all since for me, this injury occurred in the course of everyday activities and could have probably been prevented, if I was a little more careful. ~ Anthony Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
