I had a trapeziectomy on my right thumb, quite a few years ago and I have no problems at all with it now.

My current problem is with my fingers ; the right hand is not too bad, but the left - I can't bend my middle finger to touch my palm and can only just touch with the others, the thumb is fine. I have a fairly active lifestyle, with dogs, cats, ponies and chickens to look after. I find it increasingly difficult to hold the reins when riding and to pull up the girth buckle on the saddle.

I take turmeric capsules daily (plus black pepper and plenty of oil in my diet) and have done for years.

Wondering if anyone has exercises to suggest, please?
