With the weather getting warmer, and people beginning to return to summer-time activities, overuse injuries tend to appear. Repetitive strains are a common result of many recreational activities, two of the most popular being Tennis elbow and Golfer's Elbow. However, many people confuse these two painful disorders.
One popular category is electro-stimulation, this includes TENS- transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and EMS - electrical muscle stimulation. TENS machines generally stimulate the nerves exclusively for the purpose of relieving pain, whereas EMS machines are designed to stimulate the muscles for the purposes of strengthening and rehabilitating them, but there's also some pain management effect as well.
Trigger finger is a painful and uncomfortable condition that causes a feeling of locking, or catching, when bending or straightening the finger. The finger may get stuck in a bent position, or bend/straighten with a snapping sensation. If more severe, the finger can get stuck in the bent position. This condition is also known as “stenosing tenosynovitis”.
