Brief Answer: Rest is must Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. As you know what has caused the problem you must opt to avoid the same for few days. Frequent similar movements in he small joints may render the ligaments weak. hence, you should allow them to rest. Also apply diclofenac gel to reduce the pain if it is severe. Regards,
