Hi, This is for anyone with experience with medical conditions; I asked for Marius because I've gotten so much info from his previous posts already. Trigger finger, how do I get rid of it completely without giving up tennis for the rest of my life? I had a previous post where another member (scotus) advised rest (meaning weeks off from tennis). As I am seeing a physical therapist and a sports medicine doctor for my ankle, I brought up the topic and they both prescribed rest as well as finger stretching, buying Nike swoosh finger sleeves, and strengthening the extensor muscles. In the two days since I started taking off from tennis, my index and middle fingers have shown dramatic improvement; I think I'm trigger finger free there. My ring finger is a little weaker but is following the same path as the first two fingers. My pinky however, weak as it is and used to anchor my grip on the racquet, still pops when extended and locks up sometimes. It's definitely better but improving at a slower rate. I'm taking 3 weeks off from tennis and have set up hitting sessions to re-learn the mechanics when I return, but I was wondering if with all the rest and proper form that trigger finger will bother me again? Will it flare up as soon as I return to the court or will it depend on my form and grip? Is there any other therapy (without cortisone or surgery) to improve my condition rapidly? I welcome all proper advice, thanks.
