      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Finger/Hand specialist

Recommended Posts

Anybody has a recommendation for a hand/finger specialist in Seattle area.

 

Last year I developed tendinitis in middle fingers on both hands. It got bad and I ended up receiving cortisone shots. It got better after a few month break but it came back when I started doing finger intensive stuff later last year. I stopped doing these activities and it’s been healing some but very slowly. Especially one finger is not doing well and has felt swollen for long time now and even a mild load on it resets any progress in recovery I’ve made. Things are a bit more complicated because I don’t currently have insurance but that should change soon.

Best if you have insurance. They have a PT group as well as the surgery side. I've had them do evaluations of two injuries. Neither needed surgical intervention, thankfully. Good luck.

+1 for the Seattle Hand Surgery Group. I cut a tendon in my index finger a few years back. Dr. Miyano and the rehab folks did an amazing job of getting it back to 100%. I still marvel at the fact that my finger has full range of motion. :tup:
