Or, get an old fashioned ROUND metal doorknob and have a good handyman remove
the wheel handle and replace with the doorknob. You grab the door knob with
your fingers, keep wrist straight and level and turn with whole arm motion;
much like with the tennis ball. The round end also allows one to 'palm' the
handle with a nice, even turn. Or, do what I did, change careers..sharon
osborn the pain does not go away, it only modifies and somewhat lessens w/o
the constant irritations.
