My son aged 17 had surgery as a baby. he was now losing the movement in his thumb due to scar tissue. He was seen by a specialist hand surgeon who recommended physiotherapy in place of surgery. I was sceptical that this would work. He was seen by a specialist physiotherapist who gave him exercises and a occupational therapist who made a splint for him to wear at night. He now has the full range of movement in his thumb and has avoided surgery.
