Finger Splints

Finger splints are used to hold your finger in place to keep it from moving, especially when it is sprained or broken. They can also be used to increase the range of motion of a finger that is stuck in a bent position and needs constant stretching. It is an important treatment for hand-function rehabilitation.  It is often designed and produced by occupational therapists. This is basically a device to brake, support, and correct damaged, thought, and deformed body structures, and to maintain and promote joint activity.

The recommended amount of time to wear a finger splint varies from 2-3 days to up to 6-8 weeks depending on the type of injury. Severe finger injuries, like bone fractures or torn ligaments, might require 6-8 weeks to keep the finger in place while the tissues heal.
