Fingers are one of the important and essential parts of our body which helps us in holding things and other stuff in our daily routine. We all have seen somewhere somehow injured our finger in a way especially while playing. One of the painful experiences one can go through is getting hit by the ball on the tip of the finger. This is one of the pain that we all have gone through and the impact of the injury only lasts for a few days or months. But there are cases where people severely injure their fingers resulting in Mallet Fingers. In this article we are going to discuss the Mallet Finger and its impact on the finger along with its herbal treatment.


Mallet finger is also known as hammer finger is an injury of the extensor tendon and resulting in difficulty to move the tip of the finger. This generally causes bruising and pain at the backside of the joint. This can result from the rupturing of the extensor tendon and a small fragment of bone connected to the avulsed tendon. If it is left untreated then it might cause swan neck deformity from DIP joint flexion and PIP joint hyperextension. Most of the time mallet fingers can be treated without any surgery but most of the time people with acute or chronic mallet disease are recommended to have surgery due to failed treatment. Terminal extensor tendon injuries are very common in mallet finger injuries and almost 5.6 percent of the injuries are of the wrist as well as hand. It is commonly seen in people who work in sport-related places.

It is commonly seen between the ages of 34 to 41 years of age and both men as well as women are equally affected.
