Surgery tends to create scar tissue, which is never good around joints, tendons and ligaments. . I’d only suggest it as a last resort.
First I’d try:
- a regimen of Glucosamine Sulfate or Glucosamine Condriotin: 2 capsules twice a day for a week, then 1 twice a day until you feel marked improvement in your joints
- soak your hands and wrists in hot water for 20 min twice a day (this one is annoying and time consuming – but really helps)
- combined with massage – by a professional massage therapist who does sports massage
if this doesn’t help after a month or so, you might try something more radical : accupressure or accupuncture. It might sound a bit odd, but it helped my aunt’s torn rotator cuff even after surgery had failed. And it’s a cheaper, non-evasive treatment. After all, if you’re willing to go under the knife, why not try going under the needle first.
