In brief: Splint and elevate

Splits that hold the hand in the position of function ( holding a soda pop can) achieve rest that may minimize the tendon swelling.
Elevation of the hand particularly at night combine with short term anti-inflammatories may help.

In brief: Distal joint splint

Don't over treat i.
E splinting the distal joint (so-called dip) is enough along possibly with anti inflammatories and localized massage. If you over treat you can end up with unnecessary finger stiffness.
