Okay so i just got back from the Dr.'s office and they said that i have arthritis (and i am only 17) in my hands more mainly in my left hand though. The Dr. said that i should now only play my guitar for only at maximun a half hour a day (which is bull-Shit) So i was wondering if any of you guys have any advice of what i should do or if anybody knows some tricks or tips to make my hands feel better???

Funny how you just went to the doctor but instead of asking him what you can do to get better, you ASK THE PIT.

Just ignore it, play guitar as long as you like. Believe me I know better than a Doctor.

Still, he's looking for advice from teenage no-hopers, when he could have asked a doctor, someone well versed in matters of the body, about feeling better.

And this is the internet, I can read into this however I want

Obviously randoms on the internet have a much higher chance of imparting wisdom than some sort of doc-tor person.

After all, its the internets, and it is for men.

Thats weird. My girlfriends dad got arthritis in his hands and his doctor told him to pick up a hobby thats uses his hand alot so he started playing guitar. Maybe you should get a second opinion.

My advice:

Warm up thoroughly.
Soak your hands in warm water before playing, and again afterwards
Take supplements eg. Shark Fin Cartilage, C-Jointin.

Crack your fingers every 10mins and W**K more with your left hand. Good Luck!!


I love how you censored out wank, like it's some kind of swear word.

Wow. I've heard it's better to use/exercise the hand more if you have arthritis, as opposed to what your doctor said. Maybe you should get a second opinion, like somebody before me said.

Don't crack your fingers. Although you should use your hand more. If you don't it will become more inactive and more fragile to impact.

If you crack your fingers it'll get worse.

That sucks man. I thought that keeping your hands active was the best thing you could do for arthritis? Go see another doctor.When I had a perforated ear drum, the first doctor I saw prescribed me steroids. After reading the bottle of said steroids, I realised it said "do not use if you have a perforated eardrum". I saw another doctor, who informed me I could have seriously messed up my ear by using the 'roids.

So yeah, a second opinion might be a good thing. But don't trust the pit. Seriously, even if just to avoid the burns from all the flaming.

I think if you use bait and go out at around midnight in safari zone you can get it. Assuming you use a master ball, of course.
