Sore finger on fretting hand - question
I'm trying to figure out why the small finger of my fretting hand is sore between the knuckles. A physical therapist told me that I strained a ligament in that finger - possibly from playing bass guitar. Has anyone heard of this ? I've been trying to figure out if I use a lighter gauge of strings or lower the action or play a 4 stringer (instead of my 5 stringer) until my finger heals.
I'm looking for some tips to try.
try using the search .There are several threads about this. I've developed trigger finger and will probably need an operation,so I hear you. Use your amp ,lighten your fingering, don't overplay at one sitting. good luck
If you are trying to play one finger, one fret, STOP! This can cause strain, especially in the lower position. Stretching is good but always check with your medical professional of choice.
Happened to me, no surgery but stopped playing and used splints. Oh and two cortisone shots......whoo hoo! It did heal I had to stop using my flats and went to DR strings round core less tension. Still bugs me sometimes. Backing off playing helps, it needs to rest. Six but it beats surgery.
