A broken finger should not be administered at home. You should get immediate medical assistance. As soon as you feel your finger has broken, immediately go to a hospital. The bone might have broken and may need fast attention before something worst may happen. It is advisable to keep the hand of the broken finger very stiff as the movement of the hand may hurt the finger even more. You can also dip your hand in a bag of ice to stop the swelling of the finger. The doctor might have to adjust the bone and plaster your finger for a few weeks to completely heal it.
Have broken and chipped the bone on the right hand thumb
My doctor told me to keep it moving. Although I didn't break my finger I broke the joint in my finger, he gave me medial tape and told me to keep it in motion. Why's that???
