20 years ago I deveoped this problem. I was playing a average 4 to 6 hours a day. At the end on a great year I all of a sudden could not release my dart. I did about everything to cure it, including as a last resort getting a few beers in me before I started to play. I heard that Eric Bristow had this and did some investigating. I went to the best sport therapist in Toronto who could only recommend cortisone shots. But they said it was unlikly to help The movement of throwing Darts is so fine and uses so few muscles that simly the nerves get conditioned and overworked. The only true cure was rest from the game. I had to stop playing. after a year it was gone. I rested another year and played very little. Finally the conditioning of the mucsles and nerves were gone. I had to start the game anew but since I know the game my ability came back. This is not the news that advid player want to hear. But it truly is the way to end the problem without a great deal of pain and anguish. It is a only a game after all and life is too short for drama.
As a further note, any od players out there remember The Hayloft Bar on Front St toronto? That is where I first really honed my love of darts.
