Bowler’s Thumb This less common but potentially very painful condition can put an end to your game and must be dealt with carefully. Bowlers thumb was first identified in 1965 and documented in the Journal of the American Medical Association that same year. Bowlers thumb is a neurological condition that occurs after injury to the nerve on the web side of the hand after repeated stress in the thumb hole of your bowling ball. The digital nerve of the thumb is involved and pain may range from mild sensitivity to excruciating pain.

Prevention: insertion of thumb...
