Just jammed finger really bad. Ice it or warm water?
I was just playing basketball and jammed finger really hard. I can bend normally but cant bend it back, its swollen a bit too. One guy told me to ice it when i get home, another told me soak it in warm water. Im home now so which is more effective

Megan Marie
put ice on it, it helps the swelling and pain go down

ice for swelling, warm for soreness

ice all the way

Cold is the traditional way to reduce swelling and inflammation.

They all say ice and I will tell you that for any sprain I wouldn't use ice. The reason, the tendons are already in trauma and putting ice on them is going to make it worse and can make it hurt more. Warm will expand the tendons take pressure off of them instead of putting more on them as ice would do. Ice really makes one feel good for the minute as it kind of kills the other pains but for the problem itself, it can be hurting more than helping.

Ice keeps down swelling but heat fights stiffness, you have the knowledge now you must choose.

Baker Skateboards......
Ice would and if i were you i would go get it checked out ya never know what else you could have done as well.

ice, it helps with pain and swelling

Ice it for 10 min and 10 off

Ice it!!!


Ice - it helps the swelling to go down.

ice will make the swelling go down. warm water will draw blood to your finger and wont take the swelling away; for your finger to heal the swelling needs to go away.

it could be broken, if the swelling doesnt go down within the next couple days, go to a walkin clinic and get an ex-ray. to answer your question, ice it. but stop once your finger is numb. hope this hellped;)

Cold water!

Ice !!
Hope it gets better(:

ice now heat later

You should put ice on that. I think so because if you dont then you could make it hurt worse.

Get a bucket of ice and stick ur finger in it. It will help the swelling and your finger will be numb=less pain. Then get a warm towel and wrap your hand in it. It will feel good and help. Then if it feels stiff the next day do the same. I've had the same experience >_<.

It was always ice during my days growing up.
hot is for germ killing, so is cold when it's oral, gingivitis cant live in a cold mouth.
But, swelling, hitting your hand with a hammer, closing the car door on your finger, that kind of stuff, the colder the better.


ice. numbs it

Ice ten minutes, nothing for 10 minutes, ice for 10, nothing for ten etc. no warm water yet.

rember rice with any joint injuries:
R Rest
I Ice
C Compression
E Elevation

ice! never hot on that, it will make it worse. Heat is only good for things like aching muscles, not injuries.

definitely ICE. a bag of frozen peas or something works great.

ice now, heat later.

ice: so that the swelling can go down

curly wurly!! (L)
Ice and then hot

Kris L
Ice for the first 24 hours, then heat. Remember that for any 'jams' plus sprains and strains ...


definitely straighten it out and ice. the heat wouldnt do much..
