Re: Hyperextended, sprained ring finger

Ice shouldn't be causing unbearable pain. Don't put it directly on the skin. Use an ice pack with a thin towel - dishtowel thickness is ideal. 10 mins on, 10 mins off, then another 10 mins on. Antiinflammatories will decrease swelling and improve joint mobility while it's healing (if you do take meds, be more careful to not overexert and interrupt the healing process). Wait on the squeezeball until you can move your fingers with very light weight w/o any pain.
