What Is Mallet Finger?

Mallet finger is an injury to the end of your finger that causes it to bend inwards towards your palm. The key indication of mallet finger is you will not be able to straighten the end of your finger because the extensor tendon that connects the muscle to the finger bone has been stretched or torn.

Why Is It So Important to Address Mallet Finger Swiftly?

Mallet finger leads to an imbalance in the distribution of the extensor force between proximal interphalangeal (PIP) and DIP joints. If left untreated, Mallet Finger can lead to a swan neck deformity from PIP joint hyper extension and DIP joint flexion.

Which Area of Your Hand Does the Mallet Finger Splint Protect?

The DIP joint is the final joint on each finger (i.e. the joint just closest to your finger nail) and is the joint that requires support when correcting mallet finger. The distal phalanx is the bone on the top of your fingertip and is the most commonly fractured bone in the hand; bumping it when it's unprotected can be very sore if you have mallet finger. The PIP joint is the middle joint in your finger, extending it helps encourage the healing process and ensures your finger is as comfortable as possible.
