In brief: Depends

Depends on the diagnosis, exam, x-rays and degree of injury.
Perhaps none, immediately. Get evaluatied and work with your physician on the need and type of therapy and then with a good physical therapist.

In brief: Range of motion

You should focus on regaining your range of motion - flexing/extending the thumb, grip exercises, pinching exercises, pick up object exercises.
