Bob L,

I went to a hand therapy specialist. She would perform certain manipulations of the affected hand, have me do certain other exercises, gave me some homework exercises to do, built a series of custom splints for daytime use with changes over time as healing progressed, ditto for night splits, and finished each session with some sort of heat application.
I am curious what kind of splint you used that can actually reverse the contracture?

Don't know how to define it. It was custom made for me by the physical therapist. Over time, I had about 3 of them as they became "raggedy" with use over time.
