Hand/Palm Problems

I've noticed that my bottom hand (I'm a right-handed shot, so my right hand) has developed some soreness in the palm area, mostly at the base of the thumb. There tends to be some bruising and swelling if I play extensively and it makes it hard to touch my thumb to my pinky finger.

This is obviously due to the shaft of the hockey stick pressing down in that area, but is this normal? If not, how should I be holding my stick to prevent this annoyance?

I have the same thing, doesn't seem to be as bad as you except for me it comes in both hands, which is weird...it doesn't affect my play and I actually don't think it's from hockey, I am afraid though that one day it will. Maybe just some aspirin or something like aleve to get the swelling down.

How tight are you gripping the stick? The pain you describe was typical to to the guys who were doing manual grinding and such in our shop. With the heavy gloves on, proprioception is lost and there is a tendancy to over grip. Loose fit gloves can also cause a tendancy to over grip.

Another cause could be getting too much ice contact in your shot...
