Patient current condition: osteoarthritis. Has faced injury in left hand in the past. And now in the same hand, patient has blunt trauma of finger from more than a month. Current orthopedic has prescribed pain killers and calcium supplements (Jocare) only. As per doctor, massage of any type is not suitable.

It will be good to get proper diagnosis done as it can lead to a no. of problems.But if the trauma is blunt and no sharp cut or injury along with severe pain in the hand,physiotherapy is a good option to get conservative treatment without any side effect.
You should go to a physiotherapist ,a paraffin wax bath followed by few hand muscle exercises(stretching as well as strengthening exercises)+some gripping exercises(with the ball &hand gripper) will be helpful.In case of any kind of mild or moderate tingling/numbness, electrical nerve stimulation may be required.
At home do a contrast bath of lukewarm water& normal water(dip the hand alternatively),Avoid hanging of hand to your side for a long time to avoid swelling,do frequent finger movements(make a fist & open),Avoid cold exposure......Take care&Get well soon!
