Dislocated

I dislocated my pinky finger playing football this past Saturday.

It was kind of a freak incident. The ball wasn’t coming in particularly fast or anything, it just hit a weird spot and bent my finger.

It was a cold day and I didn’t really feel it, but definitely noticed something was off when I looked down at my hand right after.

So off to the ED I went and after some x-rays, the physician realigned and splinted it.

If any of you have ever taken your pinky fingers for granted, don’t anymore. I can’t believe how many things have become harder to do ¬†with an immobilized pinky finger.

Typing is tough, driving is different, and believe it or not, tying your shoes is difficult.

I got fitted with a new smaller splint today and will have to wear it for a good two months while doing some finger exercise physical therapy. Protect your body!

    Two months without my pinky would kill me. Good luck!
