They get fixed!: Surgery for torn tendons and fractured bones repairs the damages. You will probably get immobilized and need physical therapy once cleared by your surgeon. Bones get fixed by either pins or plates and screws to hold the pieces together, allowing movement before it gets stiff. Stitches are used to repair cut tendons, which allow scar tissue to fully heal the tendon edges. Good luck. ...Read more

Trigger finger: This is due to contracture of a fibrous pulley for the finger muscle and occasionally a swelling of the tendon. It can be minimized by elevating the limb which allows gravity to drain the fluid. But sometimes needs treatment with steroid injection or surgical release.

Diagnosed with elbow tendonitis for two months. Experiencing tricep spasms and odd finger tip sensation. Is this more serious form or limited movement?
Possibly: There are multiple nerves that pass through the elbow to the hand and they can become involved in the process. For example, golfer elbow is an inflammatory condition of the tendons and ligaments on the inside of the elbow; the ulnar nerve also is near that area and when this gets involved one can get numbness running into the fourth and fifth fingers. ...Read more

Fractured radius - why are my finger joints are very stiff each morning? Improves during the day with movement.how long will this last? Thanks
Swelling from break:
The fracture causes inflammation, which impedes the normal flow of lymph from the hand to the arm and then into the central veins. Because of this slowdown, your fingers are a little swollen and feel stiff.
Elevating your arm, which gives the flow a boost from gravity, might help.
This is temporary, don't worry. ...Read more
This is good news if my mum is starting to move her arm hand and fingers slightly she had a major stroke 2 years ago what does this movement mean?
That's great news!:
AMAZING- if your mum's got slight movement in her hand & fingers 2 yrs. after a stroke. How long's she been moving? Just goes to show how long it can take for people to show signs of stroke recovery. However, CAUTION: Results should not be overinterpreted. Expecting any more recovery MUST be a wait & see thing.

Hi for over a week now my finger next to my thumb on my right hand keeps on twitching like a jerking movement like it tightens and spasms . Age 35?
Spasm : Many possible causes. If it's just that one finger, you may be developing a trigger finger which may be able to be cured or significantly helped by a properly placed steroid injection. If you are having spasms in other muscles in your body, other potential causes may be an electrolyte imbalance (potassium, calcium) or the onset of a neurological disorder, so see a doctor. ...Read more
