Abstract

  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects of conservative interventions for hyperextension injuries of the proximal interphalangeal joints of the fingers. Comparisons will include:

  • PIP joint unrestricted mobilisation (e.g. no splint) versus immobilisation
  • PIP joint protected mobilisation (e.g. dorsal blocking splinting, buddy strapping) versus immobilisation
  • PIP joint unrestricted mobilisation versus protected mobilisation
