dislocated pinky finger with fracture

Dislocated pinky with a pip fracture 6 days ago, went to see an orthopedic and was told to start occupational therapy TODAY, so went same day and was seen. I can barely close finger and am in a splint when not doing my excersise which is every 2 hrs. I am in severe pain, and am not sure why I am working the finger with a fracture.
