Do most retired players in their twilight ages have especially twitchy hands or lack of motor control with their fingers? Is it known if volleyball can cause this?

  • This seems remarkably specific. Are there known examples of this happening? – Philip Kendall Aug 27 '16 at 16:01
  • @PhilipKendall This is a completely unscientific speculation. – Max Li Aug 27 '16 at 16:21

    This is completely player-specific, AFAIK. Some break fingers even at young age, some don't have so much as a bruise till retirement. Lack of motor control might apply in special cases, I don't know, but is definitely not common. I don't have scientific studies to second that, though. – cadaniluk Aug 28 '16 at 9:20

    While I think it is an interesting question, +1, I don't think there will be much in the way of literature to answer it. Perhaps you should get an MMedSci by answering it, and please share with us the results! – Nij Aug 28 '16 at 21:29
