About the Course

Is your Mallet finger limiting the use of your hand?  Are you fearful your finger will end up with a ‘droop’ for the rest of your life? How will that effect your hand function?

The finger is very complex and prone to injuries that lead can to pain, stiffness, and deformity.  More importantly, the fingers are so involved in our everyday activities it can be hard to escape the impact a mallet finger injury can have on your function. 

If this is a concern of yours, then this self paced program will likely benefit you. The online video program is designed to help you understand a mallet finger injury, demonstrate the most important KEY concepts to help you get the best result, and instruct you on the clinically proven formula to progress exercises in a way that doesn’t leave you with a droopy finger.

Statistics show you ONLY get 13-16 minutes, or less, with your doctor during your office visit.

Unfortunately, most orthopedic surgeons use medical jargon, which may leave you more confused about what to do for your mallet finger. Sometimes you are sent to physical or occupational therapy for your mallet finger recovery.

Occasionally, your questions may be answered. However, you may be left sharing your time between 3-4 other patients, and not receiving the one on one care you deserve. All the while, being left with a hefty bill.

Join me, Michelle Coil (Occupational Therapist and Certified Hand Therapist), as I help you better understand your complex mallet finger injury. I promise to outline strategies for a safe removal of your splint, demonstrate range of motion and strengthening exercises, and teach you how to prevent a poor outcome. 

All of this, in a simple to follow video instruction, demonstration, and printed handout format.


Key questions answered include:

  1. What is a mallet finger?
  2. Should I see a doctor for a mallet finger?
  3. How do I know which type of mallet finger I have?
  4. How long should I wait before seeing a doctor for a mallet finger injury?
