I injured my ring finger making a bed, I didn't even realise I had done it at first as I had no pain. I went to my local hospital and within an hour had been fitted with a splint. I was told to remove the splint twice a week to clean the finger, making sure the finger remained straight. I had to go back to the hospital 2 weeks later, I was then told to remove the splint daily. I then had to go back 4 weeks after that, 6 weeks in all. I now only have to wear the splint at night for 3 weeks. My finger is straight when I remove the splint in the morning but does slightly droop soon after, its only been 5 days since I could remove the splint and my finger aches at the end of the day but the movement I have is very good. I had a tight fitting splint which kept my finger straight at all times which is important. I've been lucky my mallet finger is ok but will always be careful when using it
