Treatment of a jammed finger

Tape the Finger and Rest

If you’ve determined that the jammed finger is a minor injury, tape the jammed finger to the finger next to it and try to rest. This is called “buddy taping.”  It’s important to use medical grade tape and use place a piece of gauze in between the fingers to stave off blisters and moisture while you heal. You may also consider a splint should your regular doctor suggest one keep the finger aligned with the rest of your fingers and allow for protection for further injury.
