Increased Joint Pain In Fingers & Wrist
Posted 08 November 2007 - 09:01 AM
During the massage, she gently pulled on each of my fingers, which at the time, felt okay except for sharp pains in the middle knuckles of both my middle fingers.
Now I am feeling pain in pretty much all of my fingers as well as my left wrist. I am afraid there may be permanent damage and there's nothing I can do about it.
I have been really lucky with my hands so far. Now I am dreading decreased function due to increased pain.
What to do.........?

I hope she didn't do any long-term damage.
In the meantime, warm water soaks and then gentle massage, done by you... might help?
Take care, Sweetie.

I had the same thing happen with a massage, except not with my hands but with my shoulders. I felt like by massaging that area, she opened up a can of worms...so to speak! For the next two days my shoulders burned...but eventually the pain went away.
There are so many benefits from massage, but if one area bothers you I would always tell the therapist to avoid it all together.
I hope you find some relief soon!
