How to Treat Jammed Fingers
Unfortunately there is no way to heal jammed fingers faster than what your body can do already, but there are ways to make the your jammed finger heal more comfortably.
What you’ll need:Asses the severity of the injury. An obvious fracture, immediate bruising or mobility loss could be signs of a dislocated or broken finger or toe
- Soak, ice and elevate the jammed finger or toe for 20 minutes a day until the pain goes away. Use epsom salts for further pain relief.
- Tape the jammed finger or toe to a healthy one next to it. This is usually done for shorter fingers or toes that are too small to use a splint. This will also help with mobility and pain relief.
