Distortion of the fingers

The ligament lesions of the phalanx articulations are normally of first or second degree and affect more frequently the fourth and fifth finger, the most vulnerable ones.
These sprains produce immediate hard pain that tends to diminish 2-3 minutes after trauma, allowing in general the recovery of the activity. 

The limitation is usually related to the level of swelling of the articulation and closing hand in a fist is difficult. Too many times unknown fractures produce relevant articular rigidities or precocious arthrosis.

A radiologic check up is therefore always suggested.

The physician will probably suggest you a protective bandage for 7-10 days. When doing sport, it might occur that the injured finger is bandaged with the adjacent one.

The immobilisation with a stick for almost 3 weeks is to be reserved for cases of third level injury, with a light degree of instability. It is however suggested to follow an analgesic therapy throughout the period of immobilisation of the finger. As the stick is removed, exercises of articular mobilisation have to be started, together with the tone and reinforcement of the intrinsic muscles of the hand.
