The thumb is the main function of the extension, flexion, abduction and adduction (Figure), postoperative exercise is mainly because of the thumb flexion, abduction and adduction with joint function and never mind, mainly rely on muscle strength, generally do not need to practice. The flexion and extension of the function is achieved by the tendon and joint, the operation of the tendon transposition, after surgery to do flexion and extension exercises, enhance the function of the fingers, so as to avoid the phenomenon of joint stiffness.
Adhere to the palm and massage, it is possible to avoid the two operation
Some complex multi finger children after operation refers to the root of the joint and the interphalangeal joint if there is residual deformity, can wear palm and massage to correct. By wearing the palm rest, let the thumb had been extended, can correct the deviation at the root of the finger joint. So is the deflection of interphalangeal joint, by wearing custom palm, finger deflection limit growth direction, for a long time, the fingers will be longer straight. Palm support general requirements as far as possible 24 hours to wear, can be taken down during the appropriate cleaning, but also to the location of the abnormal massage. There is no special requirement for this kind of massage, which is mainly based on the part of rubbing. Just like to correct a long crooked tree, use a stick to push it in the right direction.
