Patient :I broke my finger two weeks ago, it was a spiral fracture on the lower section of my pinky finger, they didnt have to put in any screws or anything because the bone didnt move out of place. I have an xray next week to see how well its healed. Im wondering what the usual heal time is for this type of thing? And if i have any hope of being cleared to go back to athletics soon? Also ive been using a laser (borrowed from a chiropractor) on it multiple times a day to hopefully speed healing. Do you know anything about this and do you think it will help?
