In brief: Hand sprain

Metacarpal phalangeal joint sprains can take weeks to months to resolve completely.
Stiffness and range of motion can take months to return to "normal". Just move hand and fingers, protect from further injury. Tingling is atypical for isolated hand injury. Ulnar neuritis, carpal tunnel, neck or elbow injury.?
