Hi there!

This could be a soft tissue injury with associated inflammation. If you can otherwise move your finger, it is unlikely to be anything serious. I assume you have already consulted an orthopedician for appropriate management. It is advised to keep the splint in place for 4-6 weeks and avoid and movements around the finger. The inflammation and the swelling would take some time to subside. You may also try some OTC NSAIDS for relief.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
