Recently my daughter fractured her wrist, they x-rayed it to confirm the dammage, imobolised it in a cast, then took it off a few weeks later without
a further x-ray, so I imagine just imobilising the finger should do the trick, and Ibuprofen is good for pain relief, and swelling/inflammation of
course I would advoate getting a professional opinion, just to be on the safe side.
On a side note, getting a prfessional opinion is easy for me to say because here in the UK we can. I personally think its disgraceful that in the
states you can't walk in for emmergency treatment, without the question of payment being raised, that is draconian, and really needs to change IMO
