What are exercises for healing a sprained thumb? I had an ex ray, no fractures. I've been in a splint for 3 weeks, and have more stiffness than pain.
Range of motion: exercises will relieve the stiffness of your thumb. It is best to warm your muscles up prior to doing exercises, this can be done by running warm water over your thumb. Then gently move your thumb in all directions, being careful not to cause pain. Do this 3-5 x/day as tolerated. Protect your thumb by wearing the splint while not performing exercises, until the stiffness is improved/resolved. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If sudden increase in specific point pain-- highly suspicious for fracture. ...Read more
I fractured a bone on my thumb and was put in a cast. I have had the cast on for a few weeks now and can move my thumb a little. Is this ok?
Probably: It sounds like you had a thumb spica cast (the cast extends to include your thumb) placed, and now you're wiggling your thumb inside the cast? Presumably you sustained a fracture of the metacarpal, which should be well protected inside the cast, so wiggling the thumb a little is fine. Check with your orthopedist for clarification. ...Read more
