So I had trigger release surgery for my ring finger (incision on the palm) in December (6-7 months ago). i feel like i hit more consistently now with a first aid wrap around my ring and middle fingers. it forces me to hold the racket a bit differently than i would if i didn't wrap it. anyone have a similar issue? i'd really like to wean myself off the tape . i think one of the key factors in the tape making me hit better is because i lost a lot of strength in my ring finger (clenching it down towards my palm) and i honestly don't know if i'll ever get it back to normal strength. my doctor suggested that taping the fingers together would provide more "support" for the tendons around my ring finger.
