I won't bore you with my story. You know. One day, pain in hands, lack of strength and agility, and all the stuff. After almost three years from one doctor to another, discarding CTS, receiving surgery (Kiloh-Nevin syndrome, they supposed, median nerve trapped by the elbow), I was decepted and stopped getting near a doctor.
Then I was told about this one who I'm going to recommend you. When you phone his clinic, you are asked if you are a musician. He is known for many members of Spanish orchestras, and he is specialized in helping musicians.
He didn't even put an eye on the EMGs, nuclear resonances or any of the thousand analysis I have brought. He listened to me, then explored my hands and concluded that my injury was that the muscles I used to open my hands were too weak as compared with the ones which close them. He applied me a really painful massage and commanded me to play as much as I could.
Well, this is the only thing which has worked, when I had lost any hope. Now I still have pains, but weaker and I am able to play for hours. Maybe he can help you too. There goes the information:
