A patient sustains an acute, closed injury to his index finger. The clinical appearance of the finger is shown in Figure A. The patient is asked to extend the finger against resistance, with the PIP joint in 90 degrees of flexion. 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?
