I recently injured my index and middle fingers on one hand. How can I rehab this injury most effectively and quickly?

The top of the knuckles is where I feel the injury most. It only hurts a little bit when I bend the fingers back, but is excruciating when any downward pressure is exerted on the top of the knuckles. This has basically killed my grip strength.
I have a martial arts competition in 3.5 weeks, for which I need these fingers. How can I best rehab them? Ice? Heat? I've been taping the two fingers together, but maybe I should attach them to the ring finger, which isn't injured? I just need them to be as strong as possible by May 30.
I know you are not my doctor and this is not medical advice. But whatever knowledge you could bring to bear would be much appreciated.
