  • Jersey fingerJersey Finger is a type of injury to the flexor tendons, common among athletes who play contact sports. Flexor tendons, long fibrous cords, connect the forearm muscles to the bones in the fingers. When your muscles contract, these tendons act as a pulley allowing your fingers to bend. Jersey Finger is a potentially serious injury that occurs when the flexor tendon at the tip of the finger is torn or pulled away from the bone in the tip of the finger (the distal phalanx). The condition is painful and limits your ability to bend your finger.
