can I keep working out while wearing a splint because of a mallet finger (on my!

I am right handed. I would like to keep weightlifting despite this injury. I am supposed to wear the splint for 6 weeks: any advice?
I don't see why not. I continued to weight train when I had several splints on my fingers, not all at the same time. This biggest problem I faced was proper grip. Just be careful there, and you may want to decrease the weight load a bit. Not having all your fingers in a proper gripping fashion may be a little dangerous. This was my case when I had my thumbs in a splint. Additionally, I keep an eye out for any pain and/or swelling in that splinted finger while weight training. If you do, it's advisable to stop. Heck, be on the safe side and ask your doc. Hope this helped some.

reattached. I had a pin and splint on it for months
I continued to go to work and work out just be careful.
My finger healed fine and I even can still play the electric
guitar. But with all medical questions give a nurse or doctor at least a phone call.

Why not?
Just balance it off the finger.

ask your doctor.
