Hi there, About 4 months ago, the knuckle on my right hand was becoming extremely red and swollen each time i would play. I had surgery to correct it (apparently the tendon neededto be brought back into its "groove" as it would fall off the side everytime I used my fingers) however, now that i am back playing again, the redness, swelling and pain has come back. I don't think the surgeon got it right (it appears to be more like bursitis). If anyone has any advice on technique, such as hand positioning or alignment etc over the body, I would much appreciate it. I'm thinkin its more of a bad technique/over-use thing rather than a structural injury. Cheers everybody.
