One of the most important of our body is our fingers. They seem tinier than the other parts of the body but if they get hurt, you will be in a problem. When your finger has an accident or injury, your doctor or physiotherapist may suggest you use a finger splint.
Finger splints are often provided by occupational therapists to people with finger joint problems in musculoskeletal disorders to help control pain, improve functional ability and maintain joint positioning and muscle action.
There is good evidence that these small finger splints can play an important part in reducing finger and hand pain and maintaining dexterity skills.
Common types of finger splints:
Finger splints come in four different varieties:
Thumb Spica Splints: Thumb Spica Splint is a convenient device designed to immobilize the thumb in the abduction (functionally neutral) position. Support the CMC joint and immobilize the MCP joint of the thumb without inhibiting hand movement.
Mallet finger splint: Mallet Finger Splint is a very simple device, to maintain the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint in the dorsiflexion position or functional position. The immobilization of these phalanges is important in managing the fractures, or dis-functionality of the DIP joint.
Finger Cot Splint: The Finger Cot splint is intended to offer a firm protective covering for an injured, burned, broken, surgically operated, or recovering finger. For a variety of medical disorders affecting the fingers, it offers a practical and affordable treatment. Different varieties are available to accommodate different finger lengths.
Finger extension splint: A finger extension splint is used to restrain and safeguard a finger following metacarpal damage, displacement, or surgery.
How finger splints can help?
An orthotic is a term used by medical practitioners to describe a brace, splint, or other items. Finger splints, for example, can immobilize joints to protect them, alleviate discomfort and swelling, and speed up the healing process after abrasive injuries. They can also help with appropriate joint function and injury prevention.
