Follow up: While an avulsion fracture usually heals well on its own with time, if you are still having stiffness two months out, you need to follow up with a hand specialist or orthopedic surgeon for evaluation. Waiting too much longer may prevent anything more from being done to increase your motion.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
