A patient sustains an acute, closed injury to his index finger. The clinical appearance of the finger is shown in Figure A.

You note that PIP joint extension was weak, with hyperextension and restricted passive flexion of the DIP joint. When planning to treat this injury non-operatively which active joint motion is encouraged?
