If the padded glove does not help, try index finger out. And don't wait to buy a new glove... She can start using it immediately in practice and warmups...When I saw my daughter's hand the other night it broke my heart. Her index finger was swollen and numb and the joint at the base of her index finger was swollen as well. Took 2 days of icing and Advil to get the swelling down. She has another game tonight and they do about 5-6 games a week.
