Symptoms:  Sharp pains

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

A boxer's knuckle is an injury of the tendon of the middle finger usually. The treatment of this is simple RICE. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.

Rest the joint and avoid boxing or unnecessary strain of the hand
Ice the are for 15 mins at time every hour 5 times a day
Compress the area by using a crepe bandage
Elevate the hand by placing it on top of 2 pillows to allow the blood to flow back to the heart

If the pain and swelling does not go down in 3 days, please see a Doctor.

All the best
