By utilizing the normal limits of flexion at either the proximal interphalangeal or the metacarpophalangeal joint, the anterior angulation present in fractures of the proximal phalanges can be overcome. For fractures of the middle phalanx moderate flexion at the proximal and distal interphalangeal joints is necessary to accomplish reduction.

Immobilization is accomplished by simple strapping.
