What can I do for a broken ring finger that is not healing?

You will need to splint it so that is stays in place and if that does not work, you will need to have it reset by a doctor.

First find out the causes for not healing through X-ray. Causes such as infection, Non union of the bones, Mal union, Cross Union, overriding of the bone, Improper blood supply, osteophyte formations etc. If so the best choice is re-surgery will improve the blood circulation to the bone and surrounding soft tissues and help to position the bone.

If a break is not healing that is a real heads up to you. Many things can impede healing, among which is untreated diabetes, nutritional problems, leukemia, etc. Though this is likely not something that heavy, a bone that won't heal needs a doctor. This is not normal.
