Patient :So I hurt my finger in netball roughly 3 weeks ago and the GP thinks it was an avulsion fracture to the Volar Plate. I haven't yet followed up on it because I go away to Fiji in a few weeks, but I was wondering whether there is anything I can do to help recovery or tell whether or not I have fractured the Volar Plate.
Symptoms: Don't have full range of motion, after three weeks I still have a lump on my finger, cannot put pressure on my finger
