Mallet Finger or Jammed Finger
A Mallet finger injury can happen from something sharp hitting the end of your finger, or it could happen from a simple activity like making the bed or folding socks. If the tip of your finger is drooping after an injury, see a hand surgeon right away. Time is of the essence with this injury.
