PIP Joint Injuries

The proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint (of the two finger joints, this is the joint nearest to the palm) is the most commonly injured joint in the hand. Loss of motion is common following injury to the joint and may even be seen in uninjured joints that have been immobilized for other reasons. Any fixed deformity of the joint causes significant disability.
