First get a diagnosi: As a sprain " can mean so many things see a hand surgeon there could be a contusion or something as severe as a complete ligament disruption even with negative x-rays. early rx includes, ice, splinting and NSAIDs but don't assume the injury is simple if pain continues, it can be quite complex
