Hockey Injury

Tim was playing Hockey when the ball connected with his finger and caused the little finger to fracture and dislocate. It is quite frightening to see your finger dislocated in this way and it is important to receive medical attention rather than let someone on the field who is untrained reduce the fracture. Tim needed surgery to stabilise the fracture. Plate and screws were used which allowed him to move the finger soon after surgery rather than be immobilised for 4-6 weeks while the fracture healed on it's own.Hand therapy included wearing a splint to rest the finger in a straight position in between mobilisation exercises. Hand therapy also helped to reduce the pain and swelling in the early days after surgery and then improve strength before he was discharged.Referred by: Dr Andrew Strydom, Orthopaedic Surgeon
