I have a sprained finger that I injured on Wednesday
Patient :I have a sprained finger that I injured on Wednesday night playing volleyball, around 8:30. I went to the emergency room and they splinted my finger. If I recall, they said I can take the splint off after 2-3 days. My finger doesn't hurt very often, only when I hit it too hard. I want to make sure it is healing properly, and I feel as if I will be okay taking it off. I would just like your recommendation, along with when I can return to playing volleyball.
