FINGER JAM

“Jammed Finger” is a term that refers to the many injuries of the ligaments and soft tissue around the small joints of the fingers. Jammed fingers are very common in ball handling sports or activities where there is a high degree of catching objects. Read More…

Finger jams occur when a blunt force is applied to a joint of the finger. The force is generally directly into the tip of the finger and combined with hyperextension of the joint. Ligaments and other soft tissue surrounding the joint are stretched or torn resulting in significant pain. Swelling, bruising, and loss of motion typically accompanies the pain.

KT Tape can help stabilize the joint without locking it down, allowing for comfort and promoting healing to occur more rapidly. It is important to diagnose the sprain so that fractures or dislocations can be ruled out or treated effectively. Failure to do so could result in loss of movement or chronic pain. Rest, ice, and NSAIDs can be very helpful in treating both the inflammation and the pain. If pain does not subside within the first 12 hours and a medical professional has not been consulted, see a clinician to properly diagnose the sprain and identify any fractures or dislocations.
