knuck inflame every time after playing tennis

the muscle around my  right index knuckle ( not the palm side but the other side)  inflame everytime after i play tennis. it has been bothering me for almost 2 years. i thought it was a muscle injury. the last time i let it rest was 8 months, i just started playing  again last week and it hurt again. i was told maybe it's a nerve or soft tissue problem.i can't afford to see a orthopedic. please help.

hi buddy,
well if it's happening on a regular basis, it means your knuckles may be really weak or the muscles have thinned out near that region. Don;t start with a sudden activity. You can try to do some active range of motion exercise for your knuckles and slowly put some pressure over it, so that they become strong enough to bear the activity.
regards
keep asking more.

hi buddy,
yes the repititive strain and stress is causing this problem. i would suggest you to keep yourself away from tennis for a few months and see how is the condition. However, even after rest, if there is no improvement, we will discuss.
