My finger, which was bending pretty much ok when I went to see the doctor about it, is now pretty much immobile. Is it because it’s been splinted for a week? Am I ever going to be able to make a fist again? How am I going to flip people off with my left hand if my ring finger’s sticking up too?

    It seems a bit early for the muscles in inthe finger to atrophy.

    Were I a scientist, I’d have background info on what I’m about to say, but instead, I’m just going to offer what might be common sense: I bet that in the case of muscle or bone or tendon injury, the body naturally renders those areas as immobile as possible in order for healing to take place.
