Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me with advice on dealing with stiffness/ pain in my left hand. Specifically, I cannot bend my ring finger completely closed and sometimes it "locks". I just had another injection of cortizone by a specialist yesterday and it didn't help. I have tried ultrasonic treatment which helps only temporarily. The last time I had a cortizone injection it helped for several months, but it slowly returned to the same condition. If I eat a few advil, I can play a gig ok and seem to have complete flexability, but the next day I'm back in the same place. The Dr. said surgery might be an option, but I'm leery of somebody cutting on my hand. Have any of you out there had this problem and if so, what treatment has worked for you???
