Finger pain

 

Home Care Avoid activities that cause or aggravate pain.
After injury, rest the finger joints so that they can heal, but use mild stretching exercises to keep them limber and maintain motion. Stretch the joints gently, not forcefully, twice a day. Stretch just to the point of discomfort, but not enough to cause pain.
Use common sense in thinking of ways to perform activities that are less stressful to the joints. For example, a big handle can be gripped with less strain than a small handle.
Avoid strong pain medicines that tend to mask the pain and may lead to excessive activity or exercise.
Anti-inflammatory medication can help. Any prescribed medication for inflammation should be taken only as directed.

Call your health care provider if
  • The finger pain is caused by injury.
  • The problem persists after 2 weeks of home treatment.
  • There is numbing or tingling in the fingers.
  • There is severe pain at rest.
  • It is impossible to straighten the fingers.
