How do you treat a finger sprain?

Mostly with time

Ice, immobilization and early protected range of motion will help treat the symptoms of a finger sprain, as will NSAID's and steroids. What the joint ultimately needs to recover from the excessive stretching of the capsule and ligaments is time to repair the damaged structures. This takes 2-6 weeks for mild sprains and 3 or more months for severe sprains.

What is the different between a finger sprain and a fracture / dislocation?

Ligaments

Forearm_fracture
A sprain is where you fully or partially tear the ligaments supporting the finger joint. A fracture is a broken bone. A dislocation is when the finger is out of the socket or out of position due to the ligament having been completely ruptured or outstretched.

No

Thumb
Jammed fingers come froma ball or person or the ground hitting the tip of you finger This can still occur with sports glove. Only a baseball mitt decreases the risk of a ball strike. If you get a jammed finger you should get a x-ray because often there is more damage then initially thought.
