In brief: Splint, not cast

Finger fractures ate not casted but splinted with an aluminum splint.

In brief: Usually a splint

Fractured fingers are usually treated with an aluminum or plastic splint on the back side of the finger. Sometimes they are treated by taping the injured finger to the adjacent finger. (buddy taping).
