How to Treat a Mallet Finger Injury

The most common treatment for your mallet finger injury is splinting. Your affected finger is typically placed in a splint for six to eight weeks. Sometimes longer depending on the length of time you’ve had the mallet finger injury.

Occasionally, if you sustained a bony mallet finger and the bone fragment is too big, well then, surgery may be needed. Surgery can include, but not limited to, a pin placed in the finger until the bone is healed.
