Finger's healing

It has been slightly more than two months ever since I had discover that my little-finger on my left hand had a jerky, popping sensation when I move the last joint. Some refer to the condition as "trigger finger".

Before I had went to consult Master Ngoh (吴添禄师傅), it hurts even when I bend the finger-joint, and as such, I did not dare to practise on the double bass. Back then, bending the joint had required considerable effort.

Thank goodness that my mother recommended me to Master Ngoh who specialises in treating arthritis, rheumatism, backache, fatigue, sport injuries, headache & migraine, kneecap pain, muscle cramps & sprains, sciatica nerve pain, neck and shoulder ache.

After consulting him, I was relieved of the pain, and most importantly, I could practise on the double bass, since I could bend my left fingers with ease, the pain-free way, to stop the notes on the fingerboard of the double bass.

In the morning, when I wake up, after a long period of inactivity of the finger throughout the night, the popping sensation is still being experienced when I bend my joints. Despite this, at least I am glad that the popping sensation is usually not experienced after I start playing on the double bass for about 5 - 10 minutes. This is the most important for me. I look forward to the day when I need not have to experience the popping sensation.

I have to learn to take good care of my fingers. They are my tools to play music that moves people's heart.

Many thanks to Master Ngoh for his helpful and effective treatment. Here are his contact details if you would like to have it:

Thanks for the address. I didn't know Blk.7 (Haig Rd) got such a master as I've been staying there for many years before shifting to Tampines.

One of these days, I may visit him for my arthritis.
