Hi all

I've a few fingers that are usually "lock" or jam in a curl up position when I wake up in the morning.

Any kind souls can give some practical advice on how to alleviate the discomfort and to prevent such a condition?

Thanks in advance. Razz

it's most likely caused by incorrect grip or gripping too hard

get your pro to correct your grip and it will ease the strain on your fingers

could be due to blood circulation......try massaging your palms and finger...between the thumb and your 'pointer' finger, there is one 'fatty' meat area......massage that spot by pressing on them macam tui-na.


If this helps, you can Thank me.

If this does not help, you can also thank me for trying.

I used to get it on my pinky finger on my left hand. I was advised that it was because of my grip and my excessive range sessions. Once I slowed my golfing down, the trigger finger feeling went (but so did my game).

I have been using the relax gel and tape for my shoulder aches and stiff neck.

It works really well for me.
Applying before bedtime on affected areas do ensure me of a good night sleep.

I used to have trigger fingers... mine was related to golfing. If I am not wrong, it was my left ring finger...

To alleviate the pain, I hold to circular object like steering wheel, umbrella or golf club tightly for >20 seconds... It will be painful, then pain gradually disappears then it will not lock anymore for a while...

It will come back after being inactive for a while then you have to find circular object again.
