Subject: RE: Playing inspite of injury/disability
In scanning the thread "how old are mudcatters?" it seems to me that many of us are or might soon be facing the prospect of arthritic fingers and hands that could diminish are playing skills. I take relafen, a prescription drug, for an arthritic knee. It also seems to lessen the inflammation in my left hand. I take several herb/vitamin/natural suppliments hoping that they might also help my hands. Its not a crippling problem but I do seem to experience pain and stiffness when I play especially in certain keys. Anyone else have this problem and what do you folks do for it. Dan
