I dislocated my pinky a week ago and my finger still hurts and I lost a lot of my finger movement. Other than ice and splinting how can I heal faster?

In brief: Wait rest then ot

Ice bath with finger motion when your doc takes you out of the splint they are waiting for a ligament to heal so you dont have problem later occupational therapist when out of splint.
