I'm looking for advise and suggestions. A couple of weeks ago, in a very freak incident, I tore ligaments and tendons in my middle and ring fingers on my left hand. Before the flaming begins, YES I have been to the doctor, in fact the ER brought in a hand specialist for a consult. I have had a couple of sessions of Physical Therapy so far and they say I have about another month or so left. I have also been wearing splint. Obviously my playing has diminished to almost nothing. I can fret the strings with my index and pinky without any significant problems, however any attempt to use my middle or ring finger produces significant discomfort. Has anyone else suffered a hand injury and if so what did you do to get back? I have asked the hand doctor to check into anything that I can do to specifically rehabilitate my hand for playing. I have done some research on my own as well and I am wondering about some of the products out there for finger strengthing like the grip master.
