Schöffl becomes most visible in the transverse plane. As climbers tend to have various ranges of increased fluid in their flexor tendon sheets after high stress, no clear information can be given as for the normal range of this finding. It is best to compare the ultrasound findings of the injured finger to the contralateral one. The therapy consists initially of anti-inflammatory medication, rest using a splint for several days, brush massages, and ice therapy. In a persisting condition, local cortisone injection may be applied with the known risk involved.
Indeed, the risk is much lower than that seen in other popular sports such as football and rugby and has fallen steadily over recent years . Improvements in equipment, ski area design and maintenance, and piste preparation have all contributed to this improvement . There is some variation in the absolute injury rate seen between different studies. This usually relates to the individual design of the study. Those that rely on selfreported injuries not surprisingly tend to result in higher injury rates as individuals are likely to report every single minor injury that they sustain.
