Patient discussion about pinkie
Q. I broke my pinkie finger a year ago. It is locked in a curved position. How can I straiten it out?
A. i would let a certified orthopedic look at the finger. treatment is according to the severity of the case. i think Terrany method is about finger physiotherapy. i'm not sure this method is to reshape uneven bone healing. this is a bit different situation, bone can be reshaped, this is how an orthodontic can move teeth- by changing the bone. but it takes a few years. i would go to an orthopedic, i advise you to do the same.More discussions about pinkie
