Thread: Stiff fingers

  1. #1

    Stiff fingers

    C3-C4 asia A, my fingers are becoming stiffier every week.

    It's been 1 yr post and I have someone twice a week to do all the flex stuff.

    Any tricks to make them more flexible?

    Thanks

    Years ago, I was in PT for a finger that had surgery, and the therapist used to have me dip it in hot wax before she did "all the flex stuff."

    HI,

    You could ask the therapist to teach you some simple stretches you (or someone at home) could do daily. Therapists do use hot wax but I have never seen a similar home product. Warm water treatments may help. Do you have any type of arthritis that could be contributing? If so, you could consider anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen.
