Wrestling Injury

32 year old male, Nicholas, was wrestling with a friend when he fell onto his right ring finger resulting in a fracture of the distal phalanx. A thermoplastic splint that immobilizes the end joint (distal phalanx) yet allows movement of the middle joint (proximal phalanx) was applied and secured with tape and velcro. The proximal phalanx was mobilized whilst the distal phalanx was immobilized for 6 weeks.

Once the splint was removed the patient was given exercises to regain full motion and of the distal phalanx.

Referred by: Dr Juan Marin, Orthopaedic Surgeon
