Chuck and Chris discuss use a listener submitted case as the basis of a discussion of the PIP joint. We break down treatment considerations for a dorsally subluxated PIP joint that is stiff in extension. Dive in with us- complicated discussion! We also briefly touch on FPL ruptures, the rheumatoid hand (and the disappearing art of treating it).
