For years, Steve Robinson suffered from Dupuytren's contracture, a condition that causes the fingers to bend towards the palm.
Steve explains: "The main culprit was my little finger; it was bent and hooked in. For instance, I couldn't get money out of my pocket because my finger would get caught. It was incredibly frustrating and getting worse over time."
Simple tasks such as putting the kettle on or shaking peoples' hands became increasingly difficult, so he visited his GP, who referred him to The Horder centre.
Following a consultation with surgeon Oliver Harley, he underwent hand surgery and attended five physiotherapy sessions at The Horder Centre in Crowborough.
