 advice for "mallet finger"
Author: tetiana

I have a clarinetist friend who has come down with a condition in his rh little finger that has been diagnosed as "mallet" finger. It involves the tendon particularly at the first joint. Mobility is decreased and the joint appears tender and inflamed. My friend has consulted an orthopedic specialist, but I'm not sure that this specialist is sensitive to the particular issues facing musicians. Has anyone out there had this condition and is able to give some advice? Do you know of any specialists, that perhaps treat musicians, hopefully in the Montreal area?

Tetiana, you may have better luck and more responses if you posted this on the clarinet section of this bb board, as their would be many more viewing it and may be able better to help.
