I had a flexor tendon repair two weeks ago.  My doctor has set me up with this futuristic looking contraption that lets me straighten my finger if I want and then bends it back to a resting position.  He didn’t give me much instruction other than to wear this thing.  Should I be doing something else for my finger?

Flexor tendon repair protocols tend to be very specific to the type of surgical repair and tendon rupture.  Surgeons typically have an exact idea of what motions they want to restrict and when it is appropriate to advance.  You might, however, ask your surgeon for a referral to a hand specialist for closer monitoring of your rehabilitation.  This can either be a physical therapist or an occupational therapist
