The Interossei, Lumbricales and Abductor digiti minimi are muscles of your hand and often trigger pain when they are tense or carry trigger points.
However, you can do something about these muscular problems. You can eliminate them with a self-massage.
I’ll show you how to do it on this page. You will also learn …
Please don’t be afraid of the Latin muscle names. They sound a bit confusing at first, but you will quickly feel familiar with them.
Furthermore, it is not important to know these names or to be able to pronounce them. It’s more about being able to massage them, and that’s exactly what I’m teaching you on this page!
It’s worth staying on this page!
The interosseous muscles can be divided into posterior (dorsal) and anterior (palmar) parts.
However, the pains triggered are largely identical.
The first two interossei (between thumb and index finger) can cause pain in the following places of the hand.
Note: If you have pain in your palm, you should also look at the Palmaris longus. This muscle is almost always involved in such pain, if it is muscular in nature.
The interossei and lumbricales between the other four fingers have almost identical pain zones, so I won’t distinguish them.
Pain caused by trigger points in these muscles always occurs on the side of the finger to which they are attached.
