    Poll for purple belts and up regarding small joint injuries

    Just trying to get a good idea for small joint dislocations for purple belts and up.
    So, not just minor strains but where there​ was a dislocation.
    Furthermore, how have you been nursing your injuries?
    In my ten years of grappling or so I have only dislocated my right pinky. It was pretty gnarly and bent like the letter Z. I immediately set it.
    Been taping it up when I roll.
    I've started rock climbing and that seems to be really helping my hands. I'm a massage therapist so that's pretty important to me.
    Anyways thanks for the input, hopefully we can get a good discussion going and bring up some science later on

    In ten years, I've never dislocated or broken a finger or toe in BJJ. I've certainly had other injuries, and I've swollen the **** out of my fingers after intensive grip work, though.
