We get these nagging injuries from years of repetitve movements and postures.
I would take an NSAID. I prefer ibeprofen at 800 mgs. This is the same strength as 1 prescription pill. I would take 2x per day 6-8 hrs a part with food. I would also ice 20 minutes immediately after exercise. If you could do this several times per day even better.
Next you need to some stretching. Point your hand away from your body with the finger straight out and then grap that hand with opposite hand and pull the fingers back gentley strecthing the forearm. Lower your arm until your fingers are basically pointing straigt to the floor until your elbow is just slight of lock out. With the opposite had grab the pinky and finger next to it. Gently pull back on those 2 fingers and close the middle and index finger. Then grab the middle and index finger and gently pull back on them and close the pinky and finger next to it.
Try those stetches throughout the day.
Depending on the severity of the injury ART may take as little as 3 EOD sessions or more if needed. I had the same injury you were describing except I was at the point where I could not even open a jar of peanut butter.
