You may find some benefit from having a physician examine the finger and take an x-ray.
It is important that the bones are aligned well, no fractures, and the joints in the fingers are not arthritic so x-ray is important.
Regarding treatment for poor range of motion and pain in a digit (non fracture), an occupational therapist can assist you in restoring normal hand and finger function.
