Your healthcare provider may refer
you to an orthopedist. This is a
who specializes in treating bone, muscle, joint, and tendon problems.
Your treatment may first include:
Cleaning any cuts
A tetanus vaccine, if you have cuts
Resting your hand and keeping it raised (elevated) as much as possible for a few days
Putting ice on it throughout the day
Taking prescription or over-the-counter pain medicine
Wearing a splint for several weeks
You may need to have your bones put back into position. You may have a local pain medicine to keep you from feeling pain during this process. Your doctor will then move the bones back into place.
