Thumb / hand Injury

Dear Vivienne

I felt I had to write and tell you of the remarkable recovery I had from a thumb injury this month after using my Scenar - EX715Ag

9th June 2010
I slipped on some mud and on landing bent my thumb back, it hurt a lot and started to swell.
When I returned home I immediately used my scenar on the injury. This took away a lot of the pain and swelling and I continued to use it during the evening.

My thumb was still painful and now showed bad bruising. As I was at work it wasn't possible to
use the scenar as much as I would have liked.

As I work in a doctors surgery the doctor was concerned in case there was a fracture and sent me for an x ray. The radioligist was very undecided whether there was an undisplaced fracture as he could see a faint line on the knuckle joint.  He conferred with a consultant and they decided that it was possibly an old injury showing on the x ray and that I had just badly sprained it and that it would take 6-8 weeks to heal.
