As some of you know I have had some major issues with my picking hand. To the point that its pretty useless to play the banjo. Long story short looking for solutions to get back at it.
My chiropractor has been good about recommendations and helping me. I wanted to pass on one recommendation of this for your consideration if you need it.
He suggested infrared treatment. Using an infrared light to really penetrate the joints and loosen up stiff muscles and joints. Might try it and report back.
Here is a link of one I was looking at.
