My 15 yrs old son hurt is thumb playing basketball. The thumb is swollen but not hurting. What can i use to get the swelling down
Hello. Thank you for your question. This is a very common injury. The first thing to do is apply ice in the first few hours after the injury. You can expect it to be a bit more painful the next day. We want to use the thumb as little as possible for the next few days to rest it. Within a few days after the injury, it should be fine. If swelling persists without improvement, consult your doctor.
