I have trouble using strength in my left thumb, and when I massage gently around the area to find the pain it would be basically right at the back of the thumb in front of the mucle that's attached to the palm. It hasn't healed in the 8 months since it happened. But all is fine when using it only when I apply pressure to stuff. Im sure now it's a ligament or tendon damage. I got it x-rayed and I said it wouldnt be bone damage which it isn't yet they said wait and it will heal. Anyone know what I can do to strengthen it?

Thanks alot I will be looking Into that for sure, my grind had told me about just going to a physio and paying 30-40 £ for a few sessions and I've just left it expecting It to heal on its own. The gp and the doctors haven't helped me one bit haha.
Like you name ozzybear are you from Australia sorry my problem's are to do with the medicines that were given to me that cut out asprin and then the lies keeped coming from doctor's so much my sides hurt when I look back on my medical notes.
Just a lot of shallow people that are gutless to tell the truth.
remember there is alway's paper work.
Ok thanks rose, nope it's just a nick name. Not an aussie hha
So, you have full use of the thumb?
You do not know which muscle/tendon was injured?
flex versus extend
I think you injured either the Flexor Pollicus (fancy name for thumb) Brevis (fancy nane for short)
you injured the Abductor Pollicus Brevis
Find a ball with a smooth surface that fits comfortably in your hand. You want to feel resistance when you squeeze, not mush.
Squeeze, hold 5 seconds, relax...squeeze, hold 5 seconds, relax
It would most definitly be one of those, I just Googled and judging from the image and area of pain I beleive it would be the one you said, the flexor polices brevis. But I do have a bit of pain though not as much on the abductor pollicus brevis. Thank you so much for that, I'm literally going to buy one right now 😁
