I am an 85% fingerstyle player, but occasionally with my band I slap. And when I do, it's hard. So hard that my thumb gets swollen and sore after every practice that I slap in. I mean, I have to go home and ice it for awhile to try to help it. I need some advice on what I should do about this because it's a real pain and I don't want to end up damaging my right thumb for life. So Dr. Mike, Dr. Snyder (maybe this is a chiropractic situation, I dunno) or anyone else that has ideas/solutions, please help. Thanks in advance y'all.
