few months ago, on a very strange forehand mishit, i hurt my index finger. the index finger took blunt of the vibration and twisted in a way that caused injury to the finger. it's been very slow to heal. most of the time, the pain isn't bad until i play tennis and have another mishit. then it hurts all over again like the first time. most of the pain comes from the bottom knuckle area. i don't play much, just once a week about but i haven't played much since i got hurt because i had a cold for a while. you would think it would've healed up by now but it still hurts and it's really annoying. it's not dehabilitating, if i have a bad mishit, it usually hurts badly for a little bit but i can suck it up and keep going and finish. but i'd like this nagging injury to go away. any tips on getting healed? i've been thinking maybe i should get a tennis glove for that hand or even just finger sleeves. would it help?
