A female asked:
what if your finger is out of place will the doctor have to put it back in place if its just a sprain or will it heal back in place on its own?

Fingers: If you have dislocated the joint, it will need to be manipulated back into place or it will not ever work right and will destroy the cartilage. If it is a sprain, an exam needs to determine if it is stable and can be left alone, splinted or buddy taped, or if it is unstable and needs more work.
