How Are Hairline Fractures of the Finger Treated?

Answer

Most hairline fractures of the finger are treated by applying a splint to the finger. Your doctor will take x-rays to be sure that the fracture in your finger is just a hairline fracture. Then they will apply a splint made out of foam and aluminum. They also may tape the adjacent finger to the fractured finger to act as a splint. It usually takes about 4-6 weeks for a fracture to heal.
