The arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) is one of the ideal things I`ve actually tried out. I`ve got a broken spine, hip dysplasia & acute arthritis in both hips. It also works great in my foot big toe knuckle which hurts in the winter and from wearing smaller width shoes. You name a product for this, I may already have tried it. It is certainly difficult to find some thing to help with the hips. .

Although I have 'Trigger Finger'' in my right thumb, first joint, this help too.


If you can't afford a specialist, try the program in Treat Your Own Hand and Thumb Arthritis at Amazon.

This arthritis treatment method “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) is an excellent item. My situation included fractured spine, hip dysplasia & acute arthritis in both hips. It also works great on my foot big toe knuckle which hurts in the winter and from wearing smaller width shoes. You name a product for this, I might already have tried out it. Hip problems are difficult to cope with, but this product makes the procedure less complicated. .


Thank you so much, I'll definitely save this video so I can do them everyday. I'm a gamer so my wrists are always in a messed up position. I was trying to play guitar, but I couldn't hold a bar chord for more than 3 seconds, but after these exercises I managed! The range of motion one caught me off guard, it hurt like hell xD

Whether it's getting in the way of your mad skills on a video game -- or it's interfering with your job -- Thumb Arthritis is a common complaint. In fact about one-in-ten will have to see a doctor for a painfully stubborn thumb. And women are 6-times more likely than men to have a problem. Here's Dennis Douda for the Mayo Clinic News Network.

Dr. Ebraheim’s

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes the condition of trigger thumb. Stenosing tenosynovitis.

Many conditions of the thumb can cause pain. Trigger thumb is often called stenosing tenosynovitis and it can be bilateral. Trigger thumb can be associated with painful triggering or locking.

Focal degenerative thickening of the flexor tendon (flexor pollicis longus) creates what looks like a nodule (localized swelling) at the level of the metacarpal phalangeal joint of the thumb. This limits the tensor excursion with tendon stretch. The nodule gets jammed beneath the A1 pulley. This occurs with a painful snap or click, similar to a trigger getting pulled or released with either flexion or extension of the thumb. A small change in the size between the flexor tendon diameter and the A1 pulley will affect the thumb flexion and extension. When the nodule gets jammed, the thumb becomes locked.

Idiopathic trigger thumb occurs more in women. It occurs during the 5th or 6th decade of life and is often bilateral.





•Inflammatory arthritis


Patients with trigger thumb most likely develop carpal tunnel syndrome or De Quervain’s syndrome. Patient with trigger thumb may develop the condition from playing too much video games.


•Anti-inflammatory medication

•Injection into the sheath not the tendon

•Ultrasound is a great modality for precise injection.

•Consider surgery in difficult cases:

oRelease of the pully

oAvoid injury to the radial digital nerve

oThe radial digital nerve crosses oblique over the sheath proximal to the A1 pulley.
