Answer

Return to play in patients with phalangeal fractures is guided by the patient's symptoms, healing, and potential for reinjury. If the fracture can be adequately protected and immobilized, while not interfering with the patient's ability to participate, then sports participation can be allowed, providing the patient has adequate pain control.
