I damaged my finger joint ( Right hand ring finger, top joint) about 8 months back, while playing. That time the doctor told me it should get better with time and the pain would go completely. However even after 8 months,the pain is still very much there and I can't bend at the joint as well. Now when the met the doctor, I was told the only option is fusing which would mean the finger would be stiff for the rest of my life. I am 38 and quite active in sports and this injury has affected all my sports activities and the very thought of becoming this permanent puts me down to say the least.

Have you got any idea whether there is any other treatment for my finger please?
