Hand OT: I will miss the meetup tomorrow but am excited for the recording - in the meantime I have a question for others who have been treated by a hand specialist. Namely, what does a good one do? The one I went to measured me for a ring splint, and that was about it. For exercises he recommended a book that was out of print and unavailable, and when I told him this he shrugged. I asked for advice about pencil grip - he told me mine looked fine. He acknowledged hypermobility- he just had no suggestions for me. Barely even touched my hands. I was expecting hacks - how to open cans, do this not that, try this grip…. Is this typical/appropriate? No follow up even, aside from splint fitting.
