HOW TO TAPE FINGERS

Volleyball players injure their fingers very often. Most often this happens when the block is executed, when the ball hits the set finger. This can happen even with professionals.

Novice athletes injure their fingers even with a simple pass or ball. Finger injuries are primarily sprains, fractures and dislocations of the fingers. It is not possible to accurately track the statistics of finger injuries in volleyball due to the fact that the athlete does not stop the game with a finger injury, but continues to play, fixing the injured finger, for example, with a band-aid.

Any finger joint can be injured. The most unpleasant thing – when the metacarpophalangeal joint is injured – it is not so easy to fix it, and the athlete is forced to take a break in the game. The cause of such an injury is a blow to the straightened finger with displacement of the bones and damage to the collateral ligaments. Sometimes such an injury leads to a dislocation in this joint or an injury to the tendon of the flexor muscle of the finger.

Treatment of an injured finger begins with a mandatory x-ray to rule out a fracture. Sometimes it’s enough just to fix the damaged joint with a tape or plaster, for more serious injuries (torn ligaments or tendons, fractures), iron or plastic tires or spacers are needed. Many volleyball players before the game tap their fingers in advance for prevention.

Wrap your fingers with a regular tissue patch, which can be bought at a pharmacy. With a strong blow, the skin can be damaged (there will be a crack through which blood can go). If you do not protect your fingers, you can earn infection or inflammation, in any case it is not pleasant, and sometimes very painful.
