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.

Can you tell me what it's like to sprain your ankle or dislocate your finger?

Pain

Twisting ones’ ankle can lead to a sprained ankle. Often times, this may result in ligamentous injuries which may lead to ankle swelling, pain, and possibly instability. An x-ray of the foot and ankle will be able to assist in differentiating a sprain form a fracture. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Got hurt by a volleyball. feeling like sprain in left hand fingers. I don't have a fracture though. what should I do?

Have it evaluated

Hand_fracture
Your pain could be as a result of many different things. One would need to do a thorough history and physical exam and possibly some radiology exams to determine the exact cause. Have it evaluated by a professional to see if you have fractured it of if it is just a soft tissue injury such as a contusion or a sprain. You may have injured nerves, blood vesicles, muscles, ligaments or tendons.

Possible cause of your pain may include sprain, bursitis, fracture, contusion, neuritis, but of course there are a multitude of other possibilities. Get the feet inspected by a professional to determine the cause of the problem, as treatment varies depending on the diagnosis
