    I found this mysterious device on my wife's nightstand that I think she uses to massage her neck.

    Since I am suffering from a mild case of 'trigger finger' that is threatening to turn CTS, I had a crazy idea to massage the palm of my hand and wrist with it at night.
    I think it is working quite well. I'm not a therapist but I would say that it stimulates blood circulation, reducing the numbness I feel in the morning.

    Of course, it is not advisable to abandon physical therapy exercises but I think that as a complement, it is quite good.

    Warning: don't use it at full speed and stop if it's painful.

    I wouldn't do anything like this without consulting your doctor first since while it could be beneficial at first, it could make things worse further along. But I do hope it helps.

    If this goes anywhere untoward, it will be ticketsville. You were warned.

    My bet is that if it doesn't produce any harm on other spots, it will probably won't harm a few swollen tendons if used in moderation. I'll take care, don't worry.
