In brief: Usually immobilize
Often needs splinting with finger next to it, or a finger brace (cushion-lined flexible aluminum brace).
Hat's pretty much it. But make sure you follow up with an orthoimproperly, prevent improper healing, affecting hand function that needs to then be treated further, including physical and occupational therapy.

In brief: Stability motion
Depending upon the fracture the two edged sword of maintaining stability in the proper orientation or alignment followed by how and when to get moving.
It is why many refer finger fractures even the seemingly simple one to a hand surgeon.
