Because the mobility is locked as a result of specific tendon tightening, releasing the tension and then exercising the opposite action will help to elongate the finger. A transverse friction massage helps to break down the sheath and allows the finger to extend.
This should be immediately followed by stretching the finger, either actively or passively to lengthen the tendon. Exercises should be specific to the motion opposite of gripping--extending the finger.
This builds muscles to compensate for the gripping imbalance.
Massaging the affected knuckle will facilitate blood flow to the area, which will lubricate the joint and prepare it for movement. With your affected finger in a comfortable position, begin to gently rub across the knuckle then rub in a circular motion. Continue the self-massage for two to three minutes and follow with range-of-motion exercises.
You can massage with Olive Oil. more
