Depends on severity: A "pulled tendon" might describe a trigger finger or tendonitis that involves occasional locking of the digit. This can be treated often with deep massage and nsaids, possibly cortisone injection. Or, it might describe an injured or torn tendon in which case treatment will depend on which tendon and the degree of injury i.E anything from splinting to surgical repair.

Don't understand: I can't figure out what you are referring to. Can you give us more details? Where it hurts, how you injured it, etc.
