DIP Stabilisation

Hand

What is DIP Stabilisation?

DIP Stabilisation is a procedure that stabilises the joint between your finger and your hand. It can be done on both feet, but is most common in the fingers.

The distal interphalangeal joint (DIP) is one of four joints that make up your fingers. It’s the part of your finger where it connects to your hand and allows you to bend and straighten your finger.

DIP Stabilisation is usually done to treat osteoarthritis in this joint, which means that it’s caused by wear-and-tear over time. The joint may become enlarged or deformed as a result, causing pain, stiffness, swelling and loss of function in the hand.

What is DIP Joint?

DIP Joint is a joint located between the upper and lower portions of the thumb. It is also called as Distal Interphalangeal Joint or Distal Phalanx Joint. The DIP joint connects the metacarpal bone with the phalanges bone, or finger bones.

The DIP joint is surrounded by ligaments that help stabilize it during movement. These ligaments are known as collateral ligaments, which provide stability to the joint when pressure is applied to it.

Why DIP joint stabilization is important?

DIP joint stabilization is important because it can help to prevent future injury. If you have pain in your DIP joint when you try to move it, or if it hurts when you put pressure on the joint, you may have a condition called osteoarthritis. This condition causes inflammation and wearing away of cartilage in your joints. It can cause pain and stiffness, as well as making movement difficult.

When you have osteoarthritis in your DIP joint, the first thing that should be done is to try some non-surgical options like weight loss and physical therapy. If those don’t work, then there are surgical options that are available including surgery on the bone around the joint or surgery on the tendons that connect muscles to bones (called tendon transfer).

What are the methods of DIP Stabilisation?

There are several methods of stabilizing the distal interphalangeal joint, also known as the DIP joint. The most common method is to use a cast or splint. Other methods include using a brace and/or surgical intervention.

A cast or splint is often used to stabilize the DIP joint in young children with osteoarthritis or similar conditions that cause swelling and inflammation of the joint. It is also used for older adults who have sustained an injury to their finger(s) and need to keep their hand still for a period of time.

A brace is often used for older adults who have sustained an injury to their finger(s) and need some support while they heal. It can also be used for people who have arthritis in their fingers, but do not need full immobilization of the joints.

Surgical intervention may be needed if there is damage to tendons or bones around the DIP joint that needs repair before it heals properly on its own; this could include removal of bone spurs or tendon repair surgery if there has been any damage during an injury that requires immediate attention before it can heal properly on its own.
