Tennis triggered pain in thumb problem
After playing tennis for the first few times I have developed a rather painful thumb.
I have been coached so I don't think its a grip problem. The pain is from the middle joint of my thumb to the lower one.. and I can feel the joints/bones rub when I move my thumb..
The pain occurs when I either move my thumb away from my hand, or if I use it for pressure, for example, gripping the racket on a forehand shot. The grip is ok itself, but as soon as I move the racket back and then forward to hit the ball, i can feel the pain the whole way, and its mentally effecting how i play the ball.
Can anyone recommend a good solution to this problem and whether people have experienced similar problems?
Thanks very much
