On #WorldMentalHealthDay I would like to say something about a person I advocate for, about #PIP & @DWP & how, over a period of 18 months, this person's mental health was pushed to crisis point again and again by a system designed not to support mental health but to punish it.
With permission to talk about this from the person involved, I want to tell you about how their mental health deteriorated as a direct result of the #PIP system and @DWP decision making, requiring them to access interventions from community MH team, home-based treatment, A&E...
How @DWP decided this person was not eligible for #PIP because of a degree obtained 15 years ago, because they could drive a car, because they owned a business (even though they had not worked due to ill health for a month)...

#PIP #DISLOCATION

Dorsal most common
Patients often reduce themselves
DIGITAL BLOCK

Flex wrist & MP to relax flexors, then gently reduce by PUSHING DISTALLY on P2 base rather than just pulling traction

Volar&rotatory dislocations oft require open reduction #medtwitter #foamed
MUST assess stability & xray post reduction

Good lateral is vital to make sure jt is concentric & no fx

If stable even in extension & no fx, buddy tape x3-6 wks

If unstable, dorsal blocking splint at 10 deg more flexion than unstable point

Or just refer to Hand

#medtwitter
Is this a concentric reduction? High-5 time?

NO!

The "dorsal V sign" indicates subtle instability that if untreated would lead to PIP arthritis

PIP arthritis SUCKS

PIP is the "soul of the hand"
